Hello,
i got a problem here.at first,my computer didnt detect my external hard disk,it was solved after i assigned the letter but unfortunately,it formatted.all my important files lost.isn't the solution format it to FAT32 file system? but i dint found FAT32.what i've found are NTFS and exFAT. i choose the exFAT one but it doesnt seems like all my files will reappear in the external hard disk. hopefully someone can help me overcome this problem. T.T

NO. Formatting again will not get your files back.

You will need a specialized file recovery program. I suggest you Google "hard drive recovery" for mor3e information.

Good Luck
