Therefore, you always have chance to restore the lost files due to formatting by using iCare Data Recovery before new data is written to the volume.
Some users often have such a doubt: why cannot write new data to a formatted partition? In fact, the reason is quite easy. When you format a partition, the data will be eased from address tables and the system will mark the space as available for new data. When you write a new file to the partition, it may occupy the space and overwrite the original data.

However, you had better backup all important files before reallocating the disk space.
Sometimes, you may want to convert a basic disk to dynamic due to some reasons. It is easy to convert a basic disk to dynamic disk without losing any data, but you should ensure that there is 1MB unallocated space at least in order to convert a basic disk to dynamic. Once a basic disk has been converted to dynamic, you are unable to revert back unless you rely on some third-party tool.
If you want to convert a dynamic disk to basic, the data stored on the disk will get lost. Therefore, when you need to convert a dynamic disk to basic, you had better backup all important files from the disk volume to an external storage media.
