I once accidentally formatted the wrong drive partition and lost a lot of critical stuff. I saw my life flash before my eyes, as they say.

Anyway, after trying lots of recovery software, it was a program called 'GetDataBack' that saved me. I believe it was freeware. Good luck to you.

I had luck with r-studio when I could not rebuild a raid. It was able to recover more than half the data from a raid 0 (had both drives, but they did not come back together nicely after a motherboard swap).

It was not free either, but you are definitely grasping at straws now.

Also, everything you do to that drive makes it less likely to recover anything at all. Do NOT even plug it in until you figure out what you want to try on it next.

Also note that the computer store may have already ran something like this. Try a round of recovery software and if it does not work, be prepared to rebuild from scratch.

Remember to make backups if its important.
