“Recently, I have purchased an SSD of storage capacity 250 GB. Then I moved all the files including documents, media files, executable files, etc. from one of my hard drive partitions to this SSD and I formatted my hard drive partition. But after seeing the results, I got shocked. Instead of hard drive partition, I performed formatting on my SSD. I don’t have any idea to overcome from this situation. Please, somebody suggest me a solution for how to recover files from formatted SSD?”


Today, many users prefer to use Solid State Drives (SSDs) instead of traditional hard drives. External SSD’s are quite common now. Unlike HDD, an SSD have certain advantages. They are lighter, consumes less power, less susceptible to shock and damage, etc. The data transfer rate of an SSD is much higher as compared with an HDD.

Anyhow, similar to an HDD, data loss can occur from an SSD also. Many of the users have reported the data loss due to accidental formatting of an SSD. Apart from this accidental formatting, there are many other reasons behind SSD formatting. Some of them are discussed below.

  • File System Corruption: Sometimes, the file system of an SSD can get corrupt due to errors such as bad sectors, forced system shutdown while using SSD, etc. You have to format the SSD using it before, if you encounter this kind of situations.
