Default Data recovery!

my hard drive has been formatted by accident and it has very important files on there... and I heard that there is a way to recover the data even after being formatted. Does anyone know how i can recover my files from it? Even after reinstalling an operating system after that?
If you know program i can do it with, any place in Sydney Australia that can do it for me etc... any info would be appreciated Thanks.

I imagine they probably can - but its not worth the dreadful money they'd get you to pay for it. Move on, Gary's right, your dead.

Lol; with the right stuff on a simple Windows Format I hink its possible to recover it after 7 Formats; obviously only the stuff which hasn't been writen over too.

But unless you have Child Pornography or pictures of Government Facilities does it really matter?
