Try Power Data Recovery

To prepare a storage medium, usually a disk, for reading and writing. When you format a disk, the operating system erases all bookkeeping information on the disk, tests the disk to make sure all sectors are reliable, marks bad sectors (that is, those that are scratched), and creates internal address tables that it later uses to locate information. You must format a disk before you can use it.

Note that reformatting a disk does not erase the data on the disk, only the address tables. Do not panic, therefore, if you accidentally reformat a disk that has useful data. There are many suitable programs you can use to retrieve this data, the one I use is GetDataBack from Runtime. You will find it is one of the most recommended for data recovery.

Connect the hard drive as a slave or in a usb enclosure and use GetDataBack for NTFS if it is an NTFS file system or FAT if it is FAT16 or FAT32.

I agree I have used getDataBack for years and it always did it's job...and I have tried at least 20 different apps for this purpose and getDataBack has always shone through.

You can try active-undelete for the purpose.
you said you formatted the disk - but did you install anything on it, or copy to it?
What is overwritten, is unable to recover  !

I'm using PC Inspector File Recovery. It's a freeware and works.
