  1. When you formatted your HDD you were warned that all data would be destroyed. Sorry, bud.
  2. Check this out:
    http://www.easeus.com/resource/recover-data-after-format.htm
    or this:
    http://www.recovermyfiles.com/

    You can continue to Google some results, these were the first 2 that came out. There is hope, but avoid writing anything on that HDD until you recovered as much as you can.
    Last resort, there are data recovery firms out there that do just that, but they're quite expensive.

    Second link website claims they can retrieve data even after writing over it. That's why I put it up there.

    you need to avoid writing data on the HDD until you have recovered as much of the old data as possible. ANY writing on the disk will increase your chance of corrupting the old data. Some programs claim they can recover over-written data, but even so, don't push your luck.

    You can recover the data on any type of media you like, be it HDD, a CD, DVD or flash drive. That is according to the total amount of data that needs to be recovered. There is no limit for that. After that, you can make unlimited number of copies to your liking.
    I am not sure I understand what are you really trying to ask here, since the media that you recover the data onto is not corrupted.

    no, because attributes of these files have been changed. you need to rename them one by one. Sorry.
    At least they're there, and not lost forever.
