Recover Data from Formatted Partition

Can I Recover Files from Formatted Partition?

I have a Seagate external hard drive. This morning my kids accidentally formatted a partition on it. Now the partition is empty and all files on it are gone. I do not have any backup of them. So, my question is that is there a solution for me to get my files back?

For users, accidental formatting of the partition can be a really disaster. Just like the case above, you guess all files on your formatted partition are disappeared. But that’s not actually true. Files are still on that partition, you just cannot access them. They will be disappeared permanently only when new data on your partition overwrites them. This means you can possibly recover data from formatted partition if you have not transferred files to that partition yet.
