    My PC has two operating systems on a C and E drive. I formatted my E drive by mistake when I was trying to format a flash drive. A friend told me there's a way to unformat it. How do I do it? Both drives have Windows 10 Pro.

    Unformat a hard drive?

    unformat? hm.

    theres no way to completely "unformat" a drive. there are, however, ways to recover lost data.

    Firstly, make sure you don't access the drive you formatted. don't put any data on it or anything. Then, try using a freeware data recovery program on it. that may help.

    if it doesn't, then you're most likely screwed...sorry......
