Lost data via RIS

Hello,
A RIS has been done on a workstation. Data that needed to be kept has been copied beforehand to an USB stick. This turns out to be unreadable. I think something went wrong during copying. I would like to see if I can recover the original data from the hard drive. When you normally do a format, this deletes the file system structure, but the data should be kept on the drive. Anybody have experience with recovering data after a RIS?
Thanks for any help

Once the drive has been overwritten, some data will be lost, it may be critical data, or it may be junk data that is overwritten.

You could download runtime software's Get data back for NTFS or FAT and pull the drive from the offending unit,
run a recovery on a second unit to it's current hard disk to get your data back.

This will run you about $99 in software.

Cheaper than data recovery on the thumb drive.
