    Default Cut and Paste

    Hi, I recently moved my files to an external HDD using cut and paste; however, I forgot to unplug the external HDD when I ran the XP format (system recovery), so unfortunately my external HDD got wiped as well. So I am wondering if RMF can recover files that are copied and pasted elsewhere (since C&P isn't really 'deletion')?

    Thanks in advance .

    Default Data Recovery

    Yes, a Cut and Paste is essentially a Move and Delete. You should be able to recover the files with Recover My Files. I suggest your run the program in evaluation mode to see what can be recovered. If you can preview the content of your files in the results screen then will know for sure that they can be recovered.
