If you installed the OS after the format then you probably will not be able
to recover anything because it has been overwritten.

Be prepared for trouble. The following items will be lost:

1. The file names for all files in the root directory of the drive.
Files will have to be identified by their size and/or content, and
renamed.

2. The folder names for all of the folders in the root directory. The
contents, including subfolders, will all be okay and that information
should allow you to determine the correct name for at least most of
the folders.

Additionally, any badly fragmented files will be difficult if not
impossible to recover because the file allocation table entries will
have been zeroed out.

Good luck
