unless you are willing to send it to a data recovery center for thousands of dollars, the answer is no. my suggestion is: learn a lesson about paying attention to the things you do to your machine and don't do this again.
it's only data, after all.

Probably, since the data is still on there, it's just had the boot tables removed. Paritition EXACTLY as before, don't format, then run GetDataBack's "Recover my Files" recover from format option. You should get most if not all of the files back.

There is software that will find and rewrite the partition information. I had it done several years ago. No need to recover the data.
