    when lost data due to format the hard drive. Well, do not worry! you can perform any formatting your disks and also get back your data. First we suggest that you download and install the free version and discover formatted files.

    Use "EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard" and get your files back.

    Hello, you could get the following software:

    Keep in mind that this process will take a long time and also the free version only recovers 1 Gb of data.

    Hello, you might want to try Active@ Partition Recovery. It is a paid program that can work magic depending on the circumstances. There is a free version but it will only recover 1 GB or so. Keep in mind that this process will take a long time. Here is the link:

    Very Slight Chance but you can use many recovery softwares available on market

    Barring reloading data from a saved back-up, I'm afraid you're pretty much up the proverbial creek without a paddle.
    If you had accidentally erased files, but hadn't written anything to the drive since that time, you can recover the files easily. But if you've written anything to the drive, your chances of recovery go WAY down.
    Unfortunately, you might have to look at your situation as being just one of those learning experiences in life--and hopefully not overly expensive lesson.
    You can take small comfort from the fact that many of us have "been there, done that", myself included. But I back up religiously now!

    Since it's a fresh format, you can use Recuva to try recovering your files. It will be best to use the "deep scan" option.

    Recuva is best but you can not recover 100% of your data from it...

    first of all :
    you shouldn't write any new data on your hard drive at least until you recover the data you want

    you can try Recuva

    or look here :

    Try "Recuva" from Piriform with a deep scan and see if you can gain anything.

    The easiest and fastest way to do this would be to restore the latest backup of the data you want to recover. If you don't have a backup, the tools listed by Oron may be able to get a small part of your data back.

    Having installed the system from an image, your chances of recovering all your data are very slight, but you can try ADRC or Pandora Recovery (both of which are free), or Prosoft Data Rescue PC, or EaseUS Data Recovery or ONTRACK EASYRECOVERY HOME (which cost money).
    With any of these, try to install the software on some other drive (perhaps an external drive, or even a USB flash drive) so as not to overwrite anything which is already on the disk, and you'll probably need to use one of the slower methods of recovery (they go by different names in each package) to search for your files. Good luck!
