TestDisk, Data Recovery
TestDisk is powerful free data recovery software! It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a Partition Table). Partition table recovery using TestDisk is really easy.

NOTE If seeked lost file are still missing, give PhotoRec a try. PhotoRec is a signature based file recovery utility and may be able to recover your data where other methods failed.

PhotoRec is file data recovery software designed to recover lost files including video, documents and archives from hard disks, CD-ROMs, and lost pictures (thus the Photo Recovery name) from digital camera memory. PhotoRec ignores the file system and goes after the underlying data, so it will still work even if your media's file system has been severely damaged or reformatted.

Freeware for data recovery after formatting hard disk, usb, memory card...

1, Download the freeware and install it on a non data lost drive
2, Select "format recovery" and then your formatted drive to start a format scanning
3, save files on the drive which was not formatted before

Do backup files regularly.

This one worked for me when my memory card sd reported not formatted and shows RAW. I formatted sd and then used the software to restore all my files.

Thank you very much for your nice advice.
Last night, I foolishly formatted my hard drive that had stored all my important files.
However, fortunately, I had eventually found your reply and tried your advice on my drive. It worked very well. After following the guidance of it, I had recovered them all back!
Thank you very much!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes Of cores, Data Recovery from Formatted Disk is possible till that the Particular location not to be overwrite with another deleted data. Recovery process is very serious approach. Once a data is permanently deleted that will hide and stored in different location. And when we deleted another data permanently means that overwrite the space occupied with previous file and here that finally data gone and this will never recover. So if you permanently deleted or formatted your hard disk stop immediately using that hard disk and concern with nearest data Recovery Company or your nearest customer care services. You can concern with Data Recovery Company on line like Unistal Systems. They provide free trial software for “ Unistal systems hard disk data recovery software”.

I hope your data will recovered by this software.

Good luck
