You might not select the right recovery tool.
In my experience, you could try this free hard drive recovery tool: http://www.squidoo.com/free-to-recover-photo-and-video-...
Honestly, this drive had successfully recovered my photos, videos, and work files from the formatted drive last time. Absolutely, it will help you, too. Go try it! Tips:
1. Stop writing anything new on this drive immediately to avoid the original data overwritten by new data, which can make your data gone permanently.
2. Save your recovered data on a different drive in case of recovery failure.
3. Back up your data regularly in the future.
