There are lots of data recovery programs available - unfortunately, the majority of them won't recover data after format/repartition/reinstall of Windows.

Try www recovermyfiles com or other software that lets you see what it can recover before buying a license.

There are applications that will recover files from a format. However a lot depends on what was done with the disk after the format that will determine the chances of success. If the drive was repartitioned that makes it even more difficult.

A warning to anyone taking a computer in for repair. Backup any important data that might be there before you do. No repairer will take responsibility for data on a computer they are repairing. Reformatting is often the simplest solution to a complex problem.

Excellent advice by Stuart. Removing the hard drive and connecting it externally to a different system is the way to go.

The following are some recovery programs that you can try.

PC Inspector (freeware)

Zero assumption Recovery
The demo is limited
It will only recover 'up to' four folders per run
But you can make multiple runs
