There are plenty such things on the web, you can easily find one. But do be careful to decide which one is what you need. For example, here is a free one, open it and have a try: http://freeware-recovery.blogspot. [...] overy.html
To be honest, the principle of all data recovery software is the same, either will just do, but now that some are free, why not have a try? The pity is that the free version i give you can only retrieve no more than 1 GB data, yet it is still worth a try.

@yojhdn, the OP wants to reformat his/her drive, not recover his/her data.

In any case your URL is malformed, but I managed to recover it. Your web site states the following under "Compatible Systems":

"It [your software] can be used under Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000 and below; Windows Server 2008, Server 2003, Server 2000, Windows Server NT."

The OP is using Ubuntu. That's a Linux distribution, not Windows, so your software would be of no use to him/her. Instead, I would suggest GParted:
