    1. Data Recovery: GetDataBack is good at recover data from formated drive.

    PC Inspector

    2. You may need to unhide hidden files to see them. Open Windows Explorer folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

    3. You may need to take ownsership of folders and files to access them.

    I hope this helps !
