Solved Recover DATA from reformatted partition

Specs: Windows8.1 Pro with Media Centre x64, 2.793 GHz / 4096 MB
Hi

So I have one hard drive with two partitions. Today When I turned on the system I was stuck in a constant loop of Automatic Recovery. Each time it said that it was repairing disk errors and restarted. My Main Partition with Win 8.1 was C:. This went on for 2 hours then I reinstalled Windows on the other partition D: hoping to access my DATA on the C: partition after the windows install. After the system started the D partition became C and C became D and it was not accessible. It kept saying the structure of or drive is corrupt. I formatted the partition and it was accessible.

Now I need to recover important DATA of the partition. I am using Recuva but it takes too long for a DEEP SCAN. It took about 3 hours and it only got till 9 percent. DRIVE partition is only 58GB. I need something faster.

I tried using easeus recovery, mini tool partition recovery wizard and recover my files but these are not showing the data I want and not showing MP3 files at all. MP3 includes important business recordings NOT SONGS.

So i need help to recover the Parition.

The program is looking at each memory location on the hard drive and comparing the patterns to known file types. Depending on the speed of your system, how much memory you have, the speed of the SATA interface, the size of the hard drives, and other factors, it can take a while to complete. If you are really interested in getting your files back, you wait. If it was faster, it would be less thorough.
Next time, you will have a back up of your important files (if you are smart) and recovering from a back up would be much faster. Most modern back up solutions (including Windows 7's built in one) will even allow you to search for a particular file. Some just use a separate drive to save extra copies to, this works also. You can even network more than one computer together and save files from each one to the other. Not great, but better than nothing.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I am not sure why Recuva is taking that long, but is is recognized here as a very good tool. I had need of it once and it found many files of the common types though it did not fine some more obscure and less common file types but MP3 's, Pictures, Word Files, and similar should be no problem and I am sure that there has been some improvement since then, so be patient.

Others may have other suggestions.

It is finding the files I need. But for a full scan it will take 2 to 3 days at the rate its going.

Okay Just to let you know I'm done. It finally finished recovering all files back. Now All I need to do is sort it out. Which seems even more difficult LOL. There are about 1,324,300 files recovered and I only need around 1200 from that at most including photos. but sorting will be easy since all my files were large so I will just filter using the search since the rest of the files recovered are useless small files.

Thanks for the help.
