Windows 7: SSD hard drive, deleted and quick formatted volumes

SSD hard drive, deleted and quick formatted volumes

Hi everyone

I had a SSD hard drive on my pc. It had 3 prtitions on it. I desides to create a one partioned drive, so i deleted partitions and at the end i quick formatted the whole disk. Unfortunately i had some important files on one of the volumes. I must mention that i didn't write anything on this hard drive after formatting.

Now i need to recover my lost files.

I tested "Recover My Files v.5" and "EaseUs Data recovery". Unfortunately they foun nothing at all.

Then i tested Partition Recovery Wizard in "AOMEI Partition Assistant" and again no results.

Have i destroyed all my files or still there is a recovery chance?

thanks in advance

Time in Armenia now is around 9 A.M. You haven't logged in after your first post 14 hours ago. Good. I just saw your post.

Despair not. If you have only deleted the partitions and quickformatted it, all your data should still be there. We shall try to get it.

Just post a screenshot of Windows Disk Management showing your SSD. I believe it is internally connected on your desktop.

Also tell me the extent of each volume (partition) that was there on the SSD.

What was the extent of each partition in the 250GB SSD and what was the data in those partitions?

In which partition do you have the important data to be recovered, first,second or third?

Did you delete all the partitions one by one using Windows Disk Management?

Did you also quick format it with/in Windows Disk Management?

Did you make the new volume active deliberately?

I don't remember exactly, but the first was system reserved (i think 100 mb), the second was my os (i think 100 Gb), and the 3-rd was my main files (almost 125 Gb)


In which partition do you have the important data to be recovered, first,second or third?

The 3-rd one


Did you delete all the partitions one by one using Windows Disk Management?

Yes

Did you also quick format it with/in Windows Disk Management?

Yes after deleting all partitions I qick formatted whole drive.

Did you make the new volume active deliberately?

Yes, i thought maybe it could make a difference

OK, fine. Don't worry.

I have still not decided whether to go with Partition Wizard or TestDisk to recover the partitions.My trial 750GB HDD is running the Partition Recovery Wizard. May take another 6 hours to complete after which I shall return and let you know. You may relax till then but download and install MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition 9.1 https://www.partitionwizard.com/download.html and be ready to run it, if I ask you to - not otherwise..

I know you had used the Partition Recovery Wizard in AOMEI Partition Assistant. Most probably you only did a Quick Scan and not a Full Scan. ( Its just a guess)

Now get going. Let us see what MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition 9.1 does.

Launch PartitionWizard, on the left Pane click on Partition Recovery Wizard > Next > Select your 250GB SSD > Next > Full Disk > Next > Full scan > Next. Allow the fullscan to complete. You will get a window showing all the found partitions like the one below.

Post a screenshot of that Window . Note: A full scan of 250GB may take 2 to 3+ hours.Wait till it completes.

I will be online and give further instructions after seeing the found partitions. Do not Cancel /close Partition Wizard. If you do, heavens may not fall , but you may have to run it again
