Using file recovery software like Photorec, you may get some of your files back but most likely not all of them. Photorec can recover files that have been accidentally deleted - whether by pressing the delete key or by reformatting, '''but only if the files have not been overwritten'''. If you re-installed your operating system after reformatting, the disk has been written to so it's likely that some of the files have been overwritten. Whenever your system goes up the creek to the point that a reformat and reinstall is the sole remedy, the best way to recover your data is * to take the hard disk out of the computer and copy the entire disk onto another disk, or * to load a linux system (e.g. Ubuntu) from a CD or an USB thumbdrive and use it to copy your data to an external drive ''before'' you reformat and reinstall.
