Hold on....

Now when you talk about Low Level format a hard drive where did you get the software to do a low level format...

Look a low level format is usually only done bye the maker of the drive......

For if you did a low level format and had no way to bring it back to the status of drive.....It would be useless.....

high level format...Best known as "fdisk" just scrambles the data to say it is know possible to use as if it were a blank drive. This generally recoverable as long as the drive is not that old.


I hope in your case that the drive came with disk and you still have it so you could possibly recover from a low level format...

Well good luck

Later....
