How to recover data after full format?

I have a WD 2TB external hard drive with two partitions: one for Windows and one for data. However, my brother formatted the data partition with the full format a few minutes ago. A great amount of data had not been backed up yet. Is it still possible to recover them back?

    Which OS? I believe windows vista and 7 full format writes zeros to all sectors which will make undeletion much harder and possibly not possible. XP should be recoverable.
