    Does anyone know of a utility, (or any other means), to recover data on a partially formated hard drive?
  2. This is well beyond the computer ability of all but the most savvy of computer techs. This is not a task for the novice/intermediate user to tackle. Partial reformatting is an issue here. There are several companies that expressly provide this type of service though.

    Get yourself a copy of the latest "Computer Shopper" as there are usually a few good firms listed therein. In any event you'll be removing and shipping that hard drive to them and it ain't cheap. Hope this helps. :)
  3. For clarification - Are you talking about a partially RE-formated disk?

    i.e., you had a formatted disk with data files on it but accidentally started a reformat pass on the disk but stopped it and now want to try to recover as much of the original data as possible?

    Thanks for the replies. I am trying to use Disk Commander to see if it can recover my data. Time will tell.

    Thanks again

  6. No, I was serious. I bought one of these off eBay and it served my purpose rather well. :)
