The chance is small to recover files after formatting, because some may be overwritten. But you can try these tools:
- PC Inspector File Recovery
- Recuva
- Pandora Recovery

You can try PartedMagic and use Testdisk, or run Getdataback on theat HD. If it sees your files register the tool so you can copy the files off:

I have used http://www.recovermyfiles.com/ I used this program to recover files from a machine and had windows reinstalled. It recovered everything. with it being formatted its more tricky but definitely worth a shot, remember each time you change or add something on the machine you are potentially overwriting more data. I tend to put the hard disk in a usb caddy and run the scan from another machine with the usb attached. Best of luck.
