Once you format a drive any data on it is lost...no way to recover it. Just being unallocated you could have still recovered the data. There are some professional services out there that do that type of recovery...military, police forensics and specialty companies....but it's all very expensive and not guaranteed.

No software app can guarantee data recovery, period. They will try, and some will work better than others, but if data was overwritten and/or there were hardware faults, software recovery apps can not work around those.

Like above I'd have a look at Partition Wizard and the link to the guidelines.
