  • Hello Lynnmanager,

    Unfortunately this is not the correct forum where this question should've been posted. Bow that it has been posted here, let me direct you you in the right direction. Data once written to a Hard drive is committed and is always there on it even though the HDD was formatted.

    You can use 3rd party tools to recover the same from the formatted HDD. But Microsoft does not have any such tools to recover any data from a HDD which has been formatted.

    Regards,

  • OK! Thank you for your caring. I have googled "free recovery tool" and searched a pile of forums that have talked about this topic. So after reading their answers, I just get a free recovery program, which has been highly recommended. Fortunately, it has successfully restored my video. Thank goodness!
