File format changed into other format after format a hard drive

Hi everyone,

I recently accidentally formatted a hard drive. So, I quickly install a file recovery software (EaseUS Data Recovery). Then the result shows that most of SWF files are big in size. I think that lots of my files have been converted or combine with other files. So, how do I recover my files?

This may not be the best answer, but I would recover the files first. That is you biggest concern right now. Then try to see what you need to do to fix them.

Download and run Partition Wizard free. Start its Partition Recovery Wizard and perform a Quick Scan. Once finished double click the partition and see if files/folders are intact.

I did full-scan. Only this partition have some stuffs. The others have files like chkdsk, System Volume Information folder and stuffs like that.
