To be honest, I would doubt it. If you had tried immediately after the disk had been formatted you might have had a chance, but not now that so many new files have been written to it.

You will have to restore your data from your backups. It's the same as if your hard disk had suddenly decided to stop working.

It depends on what sectors have already been overwritten. Try using recuva and easeus. There's no harm in trying.

Is it possible to recover any bit of data after deleting partition and then creating new partitions ?? After that installing xp.??
i have also doubt about it but still sir do u think is there any way to back up those data .?? coz i read that after deleting partitions MBR is also deleted .! one can recover that by some software if no other action is performed on that HDD but we have little bit different case that we have created new partitions so there is new MBR now and XP is also over written on old files .!!

Its ok if i cant get full back up but Sir do u think that is there a way that i can get that old MBR information and by using old MBR can I get my old data ???? no Problem if new XP has over written on some files of size assuming 10 GB but do u think i can get back up rest of it ?????

PLZ Do reply sir .!!! Help Me .!! :(

All right! I know this thread is there for quite a long time. But I just want to share my feelings of recovering data with you.
Actually, I had ever encountered the same problem like yours last month. Therefore, I had tried a free recovery tool, which was recommended on a technology forum. The forum members write that I may not recover all of my data since I have created a new partition and done the formatting.
However, luckily I had recovered all needed data.
