Recover data from a HDD

I accidentaly had two hard drives plugged in while redoing windows 7

I deleted the partition, formatted, and installed windows 7 onto the wrong drive

Is there any way I can get any data back that hasn't been overwritten by the windows install?

If so, what do you recommend?

  1. I would unhook the drive that you accidentally erased, and get windows installed on the other drive. Then install recuva http://www.piriform.com/recuva on this drive. Hook up the drive that you accidentally erased, and run recuva on it to see what it can recover if anything.

    I have no idea what Transend is talking about, seems like it was cut/paste from somewhere or its just a bot.
  2. Use any good data recovery software such as Get Data Back (NTFS version) and install their free demo version. If it works, then buy it for a reasonable sum.
