Just after formatting the hard drive it takes away the complete stored data from your hard disk. But the good news is that you can restore them. Only the possible way to recover the formatted data is using the file recovery tool on your hard drive. I have also tried the same to restore the lost files on it. Ask me to get the details of the software.
To tell the truth, the old data after format can be recoverable or irrecoverable. And that often depend on whether you have rewritten it by saving new data on the same drive.
If you have not, you do have a big chance to restore all your old data back with the help of a free hard drive recovery tool. This freeware is really worth a shot since it has saved all the data of my sister from a mistakenly formatted external drive.

But, if you have, part or all of your old data may be already gone. You should learn a lesion to back up your data all the time.
Hope my words work.
If you format a hard drive, it completely erases all data on it. Sorry but you cannot recover it.
Incorrect. GetDataBack by Runtime Software is an excellent tool for recovering data from formatted or damaged hard drives for FAT32 and NTFS. I'm actually using the NTFS version right now on a Win7 hard drive that was formatted and rebuilt to recover data that wasn't backed up. I'll know in a few hours whether or not it will work with Win7. I have successfully recovered data from hard drives that have been formatted through Windows, low level formatted with programs such as Kill Disk or PD Wipe and hard drives with so many cluster errors that Windows can't access the files. I'll also be testing out some other software.
Data recovery after format will be simple and effective if you employ Remo

types of files including documents, media, applications etc from formatted
drive without any failure.
