Recover data lost after using diskpart clean/format

Diskpart is a great utility to clean, format, add or delete partitions and basically manage your drive. However, since it is a command line tool, it requires that you enter the commands properly and you type in the right drive letter to execute the commands. But if you’re not adept at using the command line, it is better you don’t use this tool as even a minor error can cause significant damage.

If you are someone who has experienced data loss after using diskpart clean or diskpart format, the lost data can be recovered using SFWare data recovery software. It is built with advanced scanning technology that thoroughly scans the selected drive for files and recovers them for you. The files are recovered in such a way that you will see no difference between the original and recovered files. This is possible since the software uses a read only mechanism for recovery.

The software can be used not only to undo diskpart clean or diskpart format, but also undo other diskpart commands which have led to unintended data loss. In addition, it can also be used to recover data from corrupted drives or inaccessible drives.
