i lost my files in my external hdd since my pc format it autommatically at startup saying that the hdd is broken (previously, i format it as an android usb. but the pc reformat it 3 days after the format). but, no app offer free recovery :(. anyone know at least one app compatible with windows 10 that can recover files for free?
thx!
 
Windows (or any other OS) would not format a drive by itself simply because "it is unreadable".

It depends how the drive was formatted, and how much it was used after that. It also depends what you're trying to recover - videos, documents, photos.
You can try also testdisk.

What have you tried? Recuva -- https://www.ccleaner.com/recuva ?
