Re: Lost data after formatting hard disc
Testdisk has a windows version. Recuva is a decent windows recovery software as well. Whatever you do, do not mount those volumes, if any writes occur you may lose any chance you have of recovering your files. I would do what Mark says based on your filesystem. If it was windows filesystem then try windows recovery software. I would try free software first.
For future reference: Always have at least one working backup of your files because stuff happens.
