Recover Lost Files from Formatted Mac Hard Drive with Ease

Actually, every hard disk should be formatted before use, so formatting is the basic operation for a hard drive. But sometimes, we need to format a partition because of many different reasons. For example, computer users may need to format your hard disk when you want to convert the FAT File System to NTFS File System. Through formatting the drive, you can change the File System. And also we usually format our hard drives to adjust the size of a partition, to re-install the Mac operating system, or to just delete useless files.

How does OS achieve partition formatting?

Hard disk formatting generally comprises low-level formatting and high-level formatting. High-level formatting only clear booting information generated by disk data, initialize FAT and mark logical bad track, etc. While low-level formatting mark out hard disk cylinder and track, subsequently divide track into several sectors and then mark out ID, segment, GAP, and DATA section, etc. Low-level formatting is a preparatory task prior to high-level formatting and every hard disk is performed with low-level formatting before leaving factory. Low-level formatting is a dissipative operation and would exert negative effect upon hard disk life. The formatting operation usually performed by us under Mac is high-level formatting. Under OS, high-level formatting doesn’t really delete data permanently but mark spaces occupied those deleted data as unallocated space and the deleted data still exists on hard disk. This is why we can recover formatted data with data recovery software from formatted partition.
