    Default How can i get back data from accidentally formatted FAT disk?

    I accidentally formatted my Windows PC FAT disk. All files which were stored on FAT disk have been lost. I am seeking application to recover my lost files from FAT disk. I don't have more idea about FAT disk.
    Is there any recommendation to get back lost data from Windows PC FAT disk?

    How did you format the disk, "Quick" or "Full" ?

    Not sure how it works, but you can see FAT data recovery program of prodatadoctor .net
    It may help you.

    Are you sure it is FAT? That typically indicates the old, really old file system known as FAT16. FAT32 is the latest FAT version.

    Have you used this disk since formatting? If so, your chances of recovering anything are greatly reduced. While a format (quick or full) does not actually overwrite the entire disk, you may have a better chance if you used quick and then not used the disk after that.

    You might try EaseUS Data Recovery. I recommend you recover (if possible) to a different drive.
