You always need to recover data from 1 hard drive to another.

Take the 1TB disk you want to recover and get another 1 TB to recover the data to.

If you formatted the drive, you can try THIS, but you WILL need a different drive to recover the data to. DO NOT TRY to recover to the same disk.

Thanks for the suggestion. But my problem is i'm using Linux now.

I was able to recover 3 out 4 partitions with testdisk software. But 3partitions are only 500gb data. That one big partition has 500gb data. Any Linux supported software?

I recovered 500gb of data by just unformatting the same HDD using testdisk though 500gb is yet to be recovered

Can you mount the partition that still contains data?

The software detects the hard disks attached to the system.

If you are using linux, and if you can mount the partition with your file manager, you should be able to sort through your data and recover to a separate disc.

I recovered 3 partitions(500gb) using testdisk and for the remaining 1partition(500gb) using photorec to recover maybe 20k files. Don't know what to do with those unnamed files. This is all without mounting.
