“Please help!! Last week, I messed up the repartitioning process by using a third party application on my Mac system hard drive. Now, one of my hard disk drive partition is getting displayed with a format error message. Inside this hard drive volume, I have stored all of my favorite videos. I tried to access this hard drive partition several times but in each occasion, the same error message is repeatedly appearing on my screen. So in order to regain access to the drive I formatted it and thereby lost the entire files stored in the hard drive volume. Is it possible to recover video files after format? I don’t want to lose my favorite videos. If it’s possible, suggest me the best tool to restore video files after format. Thanks in advance”

Have you ever faced situations like these, where you have lost video files due to such a mishap. There is a common belief among users that formatting the drive will erase the data permanently. Do you believe it? Then just clear your mind from such a misconception. It’s totally untrue, the files are not permanently deleted but the address of these files are removed so that it became invisible to you. The files are still inside the drive you have to make it visible again. Don’t think that this is a complex process, it’s very easy to recover video files after format. Here we have mentioned the simple steps for recovering video files after format. Let us also have a glance at what all causes formatting that can lead to loss of video files along with other files.

Situation that can cause formatting which results in loss of videos and other files:

  • Inaccessibility: There may be instances where the user is denied to access the videos inside the hard drive, memory stick, USB drive due to file system corruption, improper usage of the device, virus attack, etc. To get back the access, user will be forced to format the device..
  • Human errors: Accidental formatting is always a possibility that leads to loss of video files from hard drives, external hard drives, memory cards, etc. Improper ejection of the external storage device is another issue that users mostly commit which results in format error and the user will have to format the drive under these circumstances resulting in loss of videos from it.

If you have lost video files due to formatting due to any of the above-mentioned reason then the first priority which you have to give is not to use the drive again to copy any files. By doing so, your chance to recover video files after format will reduce. As discussed formatting clears the registry files so the files will become invisible but it also allows the user to copy new files to these addresses which will replace it with new files. Hence it is strongly recommended not to use the drive after formatting until recovery process is complete.
