Lost 1.6TB of data after an attempt to install Windows 10 on it

admin 27 Jun , 2021 0 Comments data recovery

I had Windows 10 Pro trial version and wanted to download licensed version of Windows 10 Home. So, I downloaded Windows media creation tool and then chose my hard disk as the drive to save Windows 10, not realizing that it would format the entire drive. Mid way through the installation, I saw the hard disk drive name and storage changed from 1.81GB to 32GB. I cancelled the installation immediately but by then I had lost the entire data. Called Microsoft support, they helped me to get the storage space back, but confirmed that the data lost cannot be recovered. Hoping to get some positive answers if I do have any chances to recover the data.

Thank you in advance.
