I had a WD My Book Essential that is the 1TB USB 2.0 external hard drive. For some reason, I plugged it to the computer and it says, do I want to format. I told it no and I can’t access the drive. I then accidentally formatted the drive and all my data are lost. I tried using third party recovery tools like iCare, wondershare, and Stellar Phoenix to recover the data but the only thing that I can recover are the WD manual files.
How do I go about recovering the data from the external hard drive in this case?
