    When you are ready to format a partition, you will have two methods: quick format and full format. Quick format is a quick way to format the volume byremoving files from the partition, but not to scanning the disk for bad sectors. While, if you run a full format on a disk, files are removed from the volume that you are formatting and the disk is scanned for bad sectors. Quick format only remove the entries to data only, the data area are not damaged. If you accidentally perform quick format and lose important files, there are chances for you to recover data with advanced data recovery software.
