WD Elements 10B8 1012 Recovery from Android format

Post by slodriloch » Mon Aug 01, 2016 1:10 pm

Hi

I got a WD Elements 10B8 1012

My friend connected it to android phone and did a format on it.

How do I recover and revert the format to the old partition ?

Regards

You can scan the drive the demo of R-Studio. If it finds your files, save them to another drive, if not, you might need the assistance of a data recovery pro.

Will testdisk work to recover the partition lost and get back the drive as it was before ?

Perhaps a dumb question, but how the heck did he connect it to an android phone? And, why?
