Hi, our It staff was cloning a  1 TB SSD disk and realized that they are cloning empty disk to data disk and cancelled the process after a few minutes. Is it possible to recover data (not the whole disk) from original data disk by irecover? The requested data is generally office files and images.

It depends:

- If no or little harm was done to file system structures (for NTFS that would be the MFT) then data located in the unaffected area could be recoverable.

- If (assuming NTFS) the MFT was largely 'hit' already then RAW recovery or file carving remains an option. Rather than using file system structures, internal file structures are used to recover files. There are many drawbacks associated with this method: filenames and directory structure can not be recovered - does not work with all file types - fragmented files will be corrupt after recovery.

Basically you should try. With iRecover, assuming the disk was one large partition, simply scan the entire physical disk and see what that brings. If you're lucky there were some small utility and recovery partitions at the start of the disk.

Kind regards,

Thank you for your prompt reply. We hope the first options is valid that no or little harm done to file system structure.
