The ability to recover data from a formatted drive is dependent on the level of format that was performed. If you performed a quick or full format, both of which are high-level formats, your data isn't permanently lost unless you've overwritten it since the format was done. On the other hand, if a Low-Level (physical) format was performed, your data is probably gone for good. Chances are though that since the format occurred somewhat inadvertantly, a Low-Level format didn't occur.

Try Googling "data recovery software" for one or more lists of apps that you can download and use yourself. 

Good luck,

Jan C.
