Chapter 9. Protecting Your Data > Unformatting a Disk

Unformatting a Disk

Sooner or later, virtually all PC users format a disk accidentally. The UNFORMAT command provides you with your best chance to undo the damage. UNFORMAT is designed to restore the previous format of hard and floppy disks. It also can help you recover from accidental change or damage to a hard disk's partition table.

UNFORMAT is one of those DOS commands that was originally part of commercial products. Microsoft has licensed the code for the UNFORMAT command from Central Point Software. UNFORMAT came to the DOS package from Central Point's PC Tools.
