  1. To Dennis D (Moderator) and also to Polaatx (new member), 1. What is the procedure for "when all other options have failed" so I can write to some sectors like the MFT? 2. Also, Polaatx, did you succeed? I only got about 1/2 of my files back? Regarding your first question, although it sadly isn't as easy as it should be to have an "ignore that format" scenario, it is something which can be done but in a slightly more complicated way, and it does involve writing to important sectors of a drive and is therefore something I would suggest leaving as a final option when all others have failed.
  2. I accidentally did a Quick Format on my WD 1TB Passport external USB drive. I believe that the MFT (master file table) must still be there since I was able to see lots (but not all) files when I did a Scan with Recuva. Unfortunately, I only see about half of my file and folder set. When I did a recover to a separate Seagate 4 TB external drive, they WERE (good news) placed in a folder structure like I hd them. QUESTIONS: 1. How can I put the MFT back in place in the WD drive so that I get all files on that WD drive available? 2. Do I need to do something special? 3. As a feature of Recuva, shouldn't there be an UNDO capability as I see that a lot of people online do this?
