Or you could use your Windows Install disk to create two 250 Gigabyte partitions, format them then install Windows on the first.

Flyguy: when i recover the files\folders a get a warning for don't use the pen drive.(where are the formated files)
so don't works for what i need

i understand the format option just change the sectors flags and 'hide' the folders\files. but i only need unformat option for 'show' the folders\files in same place. the TestDisk 7.0, i belive, do the job but it's confused

Above recommendations may be better, but I have used PhotoRec to recover files (a long time ago) and TestDisk to recover partitions (recently). Both by same author:

Presuming the drive is (and was before re-format) NTFS, the best practice is to recover data to another drive capable of holding all the data. Also, never write anything to the drive you are trying to recover, unless you are an expert in data recovery (or have suddenly decided to become one... see below).

Easeus and PhotoRec can find and recover files... usually to another drive.

TestDisk is for recovering lost partitions (by directly writing to the drive)... I've never tried to recover a re-formatted drive with it, so I'm not certain if it can do that. It can and will make your issue worse if used improperly.

I spent a lot of time when I was younger intentionally (and sometimes accidentally) damaging files, formats and partitions using FAT (and FAT32 later), mostly using Norton Disk Editor to examine and repair disk structures. My point is, you could intentionally NTFS format a small flash drive, put data on it, format it again, and then try to recover the data you put on it... just for practice before touching the 500GB drive. Then borrow a drive from someone capable of holding the amount data you need to recover. Keep in mind that fragmented data may not be recoverable... but most NTFS drives will have limited fragmentation, so most of the data should be recoverable.

When I had a similar disaster (formatted the wrong drive), I used the free version of Recover My Files (www.recovermyfiles.com) for a test, and bought it. I did have to use a second drive, but I did recover most everything, and the program has been useful to get back recently wiped files. Recovery-in-place seems chancy.

Hi,
Sorry for the late answer.
1) Firstly, perform a low level cloning of your external hard drive to another external hard drive.
2) Secondly, unplug your original external hard drive (so that your HFS+ data won't be damaged).
And keep it as a backup during all the file recovery.
3) Thirdly, plug a third external hard drive where the extracted files will be outputed.
4) Lastly, use a good data recovery software to recover files from FAT from the cloned hard drive.
Do hope it could help you:- http://www.en.ntfsdiskrecovery.com

Default Hard Drive Recovery Mac

Hi! I know I'm late to the party but just in case others would find this helpful, especially if you're using a Mac. If you're looking for an external hard drive recovery Mac software, look no further. After watching this video, you will be able to recover external hard drive on your Mac computer/laptop in minutes.

 I know that for most of us, an external hard drive serves as a backup for important files, photos, documents, and other items. But even if every precaution is taken, unfortunate instances may still occur causing important data files to be lost, erased, corrupted, or accidentally removed. While it is common to presume that these devastating results are permanent, they are actually reversible if you act quickly and use a reliable tool to recover Mac hard drive.

The highlighted video tutorial is newbie friendly. You can follow along easily because the instructions are relatively simple to understand. Even if you are not much of a techie or without technical background, you can perform data recovery by yourself in minutes. Just don't wait to until it's too late though. Perform file retrieval ASAP after watching the video, else you will risk losing your data permanently.
