Recover Data after Format in Different Situations

When referring to format, it can be high-level format and low-level format.

1. Low-level format - no program or service can do a low-level format recovery.

Low-level format is a type of format, which marks the surfaces of a disk with sector markers. It is only able to low level a hard disk rather than a partition of the disk. Usually, low-level format was completed at the factory. When you want to format a floppy disk, it usually performs low-level format.

2. High-level format - data can be restored if old data were not replaced by new data

When you format a hard disk partition or other removable device like USB, memory card or portable hard drive, etc, it often refers to high-level format.

High-level format creates file system within a disk partition. You can high-level any device any time you like. High level format includes following quick format and full format.

Quick/Full Format Recovery

When you perform format on any storage medium on Windows, it provides an option for you to quick format it. If you click the Quick Format option, it would quick format the selected device. On the contrary, if you unselect the Quick Format option, it would perform full format on the device.

Quick format only erases the names and entries of all data on the formatted media, so it usually takes a little time to perform a quick format.

Full format (also called complete format), would erase all data and reallocate the disk space, so it takes much longer time to full format a device than quick formatting.
