How to undo a Quick Format


richd

Recommended Posts

I accidentally did a Quick Format on my WD 1TB Passport external USB drive.

I believe that the MFT (master file table) must still be there since I was able to see lots (but not all) files when I did a Scan with Recuva.

Unfortunately, I only see about half of my file and folder set.

When I did a recover to a separate Seagate 4 TB external drive, they WERE (good news) placed in a folder structure like I hd them.

 

QUESTIONS: 

1. How can I put the MFT back in place in the WD drive so that I get all files on that WD drive available?

2. Do I need to do something special?

3. As a feature of Recuva, shouldn't there be an UNDO capability as I see that a lot of people online do this?

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.
