    It's a sad sad day for me.. For today, my beloved harddrive filled with 200+GB worth of memories has died..
    That's right..
    All my anime..
    All my movies..
    All my manga..
    All my games..
    All my pictures..
    All my music..

    GONE!

    I fucking feel that man. When my collection of complete animes/movies/shows/music was wiped I was devestated.

    Unless you physically intentionally destroyed the HDD, there is still a chance to revive it. There are file undeleters, there are even programs that can recover files from formatted HDDs. However, it's a HUGE hassle and the results are around 60% recovery at best if formatted.

    I tried a recovery programme, it said "The critical data structure are badly corrupted for this drive"
    and couldn't do anything [​IMG]

    The thing I'm most gutted about is that I still had stuff to watch on there, since as soon as I download something I put it on the external harddrive and delete it from my desktop. I had at least 50 episodes of unwatched anime and 4 or 5 movies still left to watch..

    Dood, don't despair! There's always GetDataBack!

    I've recovered every single byte of 180+ GBs of data.

    Remember to install it on another HD and always remember to recover data in another HD, because recovering it to the same HD which you are recovering would mess up (and pretty delete everything you could recover) everything [​IMG]

    Just set it as RAW, and let it scan all your HD. It might take an entire night, but it's worth the shot.

    After that remember to save the current state (losing an entire night of data scavenging is not really cool) and start recovering! [​IMG]

    For future references, always back your shit up. I even backup my backups just in case.

    Would it recover files from partitioned drives?

    Here's my story, it happened a while ago. I partitioned my C: into C: and D:. My C: got corrupted, so I had to reformat it. I accidentally reformatted D: first before C:. Well, it's been half a year at least since this happened, and I already put stuff into my D:, but it's just an empty partitioned drive with no programs in it. Just pictures and videos.

    So yeah, i want to recover the pictures lost.. because those are the most important stuff to me since it contains a lot of memories of me and my friends. I'm wondering if its possible despite the fact it's 6 months passed and also, I've been putting things in the drive after it's formated.

    That's nothing.
    Lose a terabyte or more and then cry.
