#1 Post by DerInternet » 19 Sep 2012, 21:29

Hello!
I accidently quick formatted a HD in Windows 7 with the "format fs=NTFS LABEL=”Windows 7” QUICK OVERRIDE” command.

the drive is now empty, is there any chance i can get hands on my files? i googled a lot but i cannot find any solutions

i tried the photo recovery tool, it finds some data but with some cryptic names. i tried another tool by another producer and this tools finds the right filenames!?

PhotoRec doesn't recover original filenames (except for FAT in expert mode), so if you need them, use the other tool.
