I have deleted partition on usb hard drive and lost my data. I had to do a quick format so I could see it again. Is there a way to recover the data that was on it? I have tried pandora recovery and undeleteplus but no luck yet. Half the drive was NTFS and the other half was in 3 Fat32 partition. The date i need to recover is on the NTFS prtition. It is now fromatted to NTFS.

Yes Testdisk has found all my files. Is there a way to put the files back in the same place they were on the hard drive?? or do I have to copy them to another disk.

Back them up and copy to a location that suits you.
Dont forget to keep the backup too.

Testdisk is a great tool and always handy to have by you.

All the best musicman
