How do you use REMO software for formatted drive recovery?

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.

Use Disk Eraser to permanently delete data from hard drive

A file can be removed from the system by performing either of these operations:

  • Deleting a file using Shift + Del key
  • Trash a file in the recycle bin and empty the recycle bin
  • Formatting/reformatting the drive

We usually think that by performing any of these operations, a file can be permanently removed from our system. That is absolutely wrong and not at all a secure way to remove data from the drive. As Windows doesn’t delete the files permanently, instead it tags those data blocks as safe for rewrite. Your sensitive files can then be easily recovered with the help of data recovery software.

It is only with the help of good Disk Eraser software you can be sure that the data in your computer is shredded and becomes unrecoverable and unreadable to anyone.

The files which you want to permanent delete may be your personal information, your banking information, or it can be your other sensitive data. Instead of deleting you need to just shred those files so that they can never be recovered.

One of the greatest utility is Remo File shredder that permanently shreds files and folders from your Windows drive using a variety of user adjustable options. It shreds the deleted data forever, leaving no trace behind. It displays a convenient “tree view” so the user can drag and drop select files and folders to shred. All you have to do is just add files and folders to “Shred Zone”, select the required shredding patterns, and File Shredder takes care of the rest.

Normal file deletion only removes a file’s directory entry from the index that your Operating System maintains, but the file still remains on the physical storage device. Remo File Shredder offers 9 Shredding patterns, all of which exceed the standards of the US which makes the files unrecoverable.
