“Hi, I cloned my 500GB SSD to a 5TB external hard drive using Disk Copy Software. I thought the software only cloned the 500GB SSD to the unused disk space (about 3TB) of the external hard drive. However, after successfully cloning the data, I found the 5TB external hard drive had been formatted and all original documents on the external hard drive were lost, I could only find the cloned data on the external hard drive. Is there any method to recover the lost documents?” - Jeremy
