Default recovering files after reformat

i had files saved in the SharedDocs folder which was in the My Network Places folder. I forgot to back those files up when I reformated my PC. Now they are gone. Is there a way I can get them back? I had very important files on it.

im running windows xp pro

but iheard that reformated doesnt delete everything. like if u use a special program u can get ur files back. cuz people were argueing over this issue because when people throw out their harddrive, they think everything is deleted, but it isnt.

Maybe, but i'm pretty sure that reformat deleted EVERYTHING on your hardrive
When u format it says-
"WARNING!!! All data on non-removsable drive [C] will be erased.

Yeah, all files get removed..
Unless you did something that was like reformatting like for instance re-installing windows.
