Default Accidentally Formatted my memory card..

Well not really,but i cut and paste all of my photos from my memory card to my computer last night. Today i formatted my PC and reinstalled windows and i completely forgot to back them up.

Now some of these photo's are really important (Such as my 365 Day Photo's,holidays,etc,etc),how can i recover these off of my Hardrive OR Memory card?

P.s I Have tried recuva but some of them came back corrupt

Edit; I Have Managed to get all of my 365 Day Project photo's back and most of my other but there are still others missing....

I've used R-Studio and Restorer 2000 to great success. Neither are free though.

Don't cut the pics from the memory card next time, just copy them.

You could attempt to use recuva on the computer's hard drive as well.

that's exactly what I was going to recommend.

I'm in fact using it at the moment to recover files from my sisters laptop hard drive where she had some kind of error that lost all the partition information.

I've also used it to recover files before after formatting a drive, and re-installing windows.

basically, the fast format feature of windows doesn't scrub a disk, it just resets various bits, so you should be able to use the program on your current newly installed windows installation to recover files from the previous installation on the same disk...

as above, it's not free, but it is cheap. and well worth it...
(the only annoying thing about it is -or at least was when I bought it) that you buy a recovery tool for a specific version, I bought the NTFS version, so I can recover files from NTFS drives, but couldn't use the version I have to recover files from a FAT formatted memory card).
