Hard drive is the primary storage device in the computer system. All the data including the operating system is saved on the hard drive. But in certain conditions, hard drive fails to respond due to the corruption occured in it and you fall into a condition to urgently recover hard drive data. The coruption in the hard drive may occur due to several reasons.
Two reasons that results in the corruption of the hard drive are physical damage and logical damage. A physical damage can however be handled by replacing the damaged part with a new one or submitting the damaged part in the data recovery center for recovery of the data. However, a logical damage is the major reason for data loss. The data in a hard drive is saved on its different sectors in an organized manner. When there is a logical damage, the data from the sectors is lost. However, if you have an updated backup of your hard drive, you can recover the data. But, in case you donot have a proper backup, you can get back your data by using hard drive recovery software.
Actually when the hard drive gets corrupt, it is formatted to bring it back to the working condition. Formating and reinstalling the operating system of course sets the hard drive in to working condition. But reinstallation of Windows wipes out the data so that it is no more accessible. It creates new file system causing inaccessibility of the data saved on the hard drive.
However, the data remains intact in the hard drive untill the hard drive is fed with new data. Once the data is fed to the formatted hard drive, it overwrites the older data and thereby the older data is no longer recovered back. It is therefore, recommended before going for data recovery, one should not perform any write operation on the hard drive. Afet the formatting go for an efficient Windows hard drive recovery software to get back all your data.
