Re: Accidentally Formatted My HDD - Best Way To Recover It?

Just wanted to post an update: I basically recovered all of my data, and most of it retained the file names. I actually used 3 different programs to run a recovery, EaseUS Recovery Wizard (ok app, but makes you pay to actually recover the found data). But the apps that are the best, are the TestDisc program that codestation recommended (thanks a ton, my friend for your help, especially via PM...when I needed it). However I seem to recall having some issue with TestDisc, so I used its "sister" app (from the same dev), PhotoRec: worked like a charm! I now need to delete like half of my 4TB HDD, as I recovered it like twice with different utilities LOL, just to be sure I didn't miss anything (which I may still have), but I got at least almost everything I really needed/wanted back. :D

A big thank you to everybody who took the time to reply, and offer advice to help me out. It is much appreciated! :)
