  1. Possibly. You should use something like Secure Erase which can be found at http://cmrr.ucsd.edu/people/Hughes/secure-erase.html.
  2. Have you overwritten data on the formatted drive? The odds of recovery depends, in part, on how many times the data you wish to retrieve has been overwritten. With the right recovery tool and a deep scan it may be possible.

    It also depends on if you did a full format and which OS you used. I believe vista and higher write zeros during a full format. This will greatly decrease the odds of getting anything back.
