usually it cant be recovered - it would depend on if you did a "quick" format or "full" format.

Quick format only really blanks the contents file for the HDD - in which case some free software can help you recover some of your lost data - but from previous experience the results are not that great, often only recovering fragmented files

Pc Inspector file recovery will get back most of your files.
IF you have not started writing to the formatted hard drive. The more you write to the drive the more that will be lost.
