Recovered Lost Disk Data Without Formatting

I was using DISKPART command for my pen drive.

I selected wrong disk and typed CLEAN command for my hard Disk instead for pen drive. :fearful:


  • My D Drive became unallocated.

  • I assign letter but that was not helpful. It was asking me to do format which was out of scope.

  • This way lost around 2.77 MB important data from the Disk.


Long story short, I did a lot of YouTube search but it was not helpful.

Finally …

I tried Drill Recovery Software and it listed all files with option to preview.

After a while, I realized this software offer 500MB free recovery which I felt sufficient.

I selected few important files and recovered to a safe location.

I am really thankful that Drill helped me.
