Quick Data Recovery Req

Hi all,
I know this Q might have popped earlier on but i have not able to find the complete solution in the forum, Anyway i have a accidentally formatted HD.

I need to restore the files along with the FILE STRUCTURE. I am able to retrieve all the files but the issue is i have some thing like 10K + images in 100+ folders .

All the images are retrieved via Recuva or Easus Data recovery but i need some thing that can recover the file structure as well.

Note that i havent overwritten once over the HD after formatting it

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Sorry for the late response, i tried your suggestion and seems that both RecoverMyFiles and Stellar Phoenix were able to retrieve atleast my file structure and the exact size of each file.

So i recovered my whole 320 GB HD to find out that none, not even a single file is readable. All types of files were either corrupt or damages but showed the size as normal.

Has some 1 experienced some thing like this and able to recover from it???
