Crashed, and overwritten...twice...!

Chances of data recovery at this point are slim. I am afraid you will only get a small amount back in a complete format.

Do not use the drive any more, do not boot from it, re-install anything to it or even plug it in, get a professional to help scan the drive with recovery software in-case any files are still left intact.

(When you re-installed windows ... twice you have essentially overwritten the existing files on the Disk some files may still be intact, but chances are they will be few in-between with most being over written for the 2 re-installs)

just get your data from the backup you should have

basic recovery software can read from the areas that have not been over-written (if you did a quick format and not too much "area" was used afterward)

"recuva" is free but never tried it myself

just remember the golden rule - DONT use the drive you want the data from FOR the recovery process - take the drive out and use another pc to recover the data
