The most important aspect to know regarding formatting or reformatting a hard disk is that the formatting / reformatting process erases all the data on the hard disk. Well, to be precise, it just writes a fresh directory structure that enables all the files to be overwritten, hence creating a blank disk drive. There are few utilities though, that can reliably recover files and folders after the disk drive have been formatted.  However for all practical purposes, formatting a hard disk drive is the same as erasing all data from it. This is because the hard disk drive needs to be, prior to formatting.

Some obvious reasons for formatting a hard drive:

  • To remove junk files: Formatting the hard drive in order to clear the drive of junk JPEG or other data which may be contaminated with viruses. The process wipes off all files and folders present on it. Creating a backup for this kind of files is pointless as it has excess of junk data and viruses
  • Unintentional formatting: Formatting any hard drive accidentally while executing any other task causes the consequences of losing any information including .jpeg files which were residing on it. Similarly, formatting or reformatting a wrong volume instead of formatting the malfunctioning hard drive brings same consequences
  • Faults during formatting: Errors encountered while formatting a hard disk drive using the Disk Utility Manager will cause all data including photos, etc. residing on it to turn inaccessible or deleted. This is similar to the disk drive being formatted, leaving you with no other option but to recover JPEG files after format
  • To resolve corruption issues: In cases where the Windows supported disk drives have turned corrupt or inaccessible caused by reasons such as inappropriate usage, etc. you will have to reformat the drive disk in order to retune the hard drive from errors and corruptions. In such situations, you are however unable to create a backup of that hard drive before formatting it. Hence you will have to recover JPEG files after format in order to get them back
