REMO has a very well document guide that walks you through every step of the way when regarding formatted drive recovery. However, the process can be confusing and there are some additional requirements when you’re dealing with formatted drives. Most of the time, the drive you formatted will be your primary drive for your computer. If this specific drive contained your operating system then your computer is no longer bootable. If you try to re-install the operating system and then use REMO, the odds are likely that your files and data will not be able to be recovered. Because of this, when you format a drive you need to stop using the drive and leave it how it is. Next, you will need a healthy computer that’s bootable and can run the REMO software. If you don’t have a healthy computer then you need to ask a friend or family member if you can use theirs.
The first step when you’re attempting to recover data from formatted drives is to properly configure the drive into the healthy computer system. The internal components in a computer are probably not as technically difficult as you may think. Open up the computer and locate the main drive that is already inside. You will need an additional power cable that comes from the power supply and a data cable. If the cables going to the primary drive are large ribbon like cable then these are called “IDE” cables and you will need to configure your drive as a secondary slave device. If the cable is skinny then it probably is a “SATA” cable and you can configure your drive as a SATA device by plugging it in. When you turn on the computer you should ensure that the drive you plugged in is listed in the BIOS so that you know it is working. REMO can recover data from formatted drive, recover deleted files from transcend drive and it features secure erase flash drive utilities.
