Ok, I was formating my sister's PC the other day. I had this external USB HD that I keep all my backup and stuff that I usually throw over when I do a fresh install so I don't have to spend say 4-6 hours downloading programs and tools to save bandwidth etc.. Anyways long story short I accidently hit quick format on it cuz the mouse/keyboard on over the wrong drive. I quickly realized it cuz the SSD installed was 256GB HD meanwhile the external was 2.5TB. anyways long story short I'm trying a few restore program that are free but not many have a good restore partition and most have only 'search' or recover files option.
Anyways last thing I wanna do is recover only 30% of the files. Also I don't understand linux so no linux mumbo jumbo stuff.
