• How to undo a quick format

    • formatting just removes links to where the data is on the HDD. The data is still on the HDD, but the HDD doesn't know where it all is. It is still possible to recover what's on it, though. But there are no 100% guarantees with this. The only difference between full-formatting and quick-formatting is that full-formatting checks the HDD for bad sectors before it formats. Quick does not. To completely blank the data out on a HDD you do a low-level format, aka "zeroing out the HDD." This destroys the links as well as the data itself.
