How do i recover the deleted pictures from the partition of a formated hard drive. I have an old hard drive that has a partition where I hid my pictures after I formated the hard drive but how do I do this?


I would recommend you not to touch that partition of the hard disk. Do not write any data on the disk because that could possibly overwrite your useful data. If the hard disk has a single partition, then use a different computer to download a LIVE CD/USB image and make a bootable flash drive or CD. One of the most popular images can be found here:- http://www.system-rescue-cd.org . You can find a lot of information on that website itself as in on how to make a bootable disk.

Next, use Testdisk documentation to see the options and use the tool to retrieve your data. Step-by-step guide would be very useful in this regard.
