Hey, I have a question. A couple weeks ago I got a Wii U and an extra external harddrive to put games on but I accidentally formatted the wrong harddrive and lost a ton of files I've been saving up for pretty much my whole life. I figured they were lost forever so I ended up just putting a whole bunch of games on it. But then I heard it's possible to restore files from a harddrive after a reformat. I tried using a data restoration program but it couldn't find the harddrive since it's formatted to WBFS. Is there a way to retrieve the files from it anyway? Like some sort of exploit to make the harddrive detectable, or just format it to NTFS or exFAT so it can detect it then? When do files actually disappear permanently?
