Data Recovery

I have a notebook that was running Windows 7 Home Premium and was formatted and re-installed with Win 7 Pro. The user failed to backup his data and now wants it to be recovered. I know there isn't a 100% solution for data recovery but could anyone point in the direction of good recovery software?

Thanks in advance.

Hi

since it is formatted and over written, you have to try your luck in recovering, you may be successful to get the data from the places were it hasnt over written. If you want to invest Getdata back for NTFS is a good one
