It is known that when we format our storage device like memory card, it will reset the setting, and all the data on the device will be removed. Is it possible to recover the data safely?

Fortunately, the answer is yes, you can recover data from formatted SD card easily.

Some people would like to try CMD command prompt to unformat the SD card, CMD command prompt is a system tool which can perform many operations on the Windows system, including format, recover the hidden drive, etc. But to be honest, it is really not working for SD card format recovery. If you want to recover your important data from formatted SD card, you need a data recovery tool.

Quick Format or Full Format

Quick format is a normal format, it will only erase all the data on the SD card, if you quick format your SD card, your data on the formatted SD card can be easily recovered if you have a data recovery tool.

Full format is another kind of format, it will erase all the data, reset it to factory setting, and it will check the bad track on your disk, if there is a bad track, this place won’t store data anymore. Some software can not recover data from full formatted device. But don’t worry, the data recovery tool I recommend to you is a good tool which can recover both kind of formatted data.
