Default unformat hard drive?

hello

i kind of have a major problem, about 2 days ago my pc stopped working properly, so i decided to reinstall windows. Before doing this I put everything on th hard drive on to another hard drive (to transfer it back after the re-install) however, the hard drive with all th backed up stuff stopped working (told me it needed to be formatted) so i formatted it (using quick format) in the hope of being able to recover the files. Ive tried a few recovery file things, but they dont find anything ;(

is there anyway this is possible, by using a (preferably free) program or something, or is everythin lost and gone forever ?

cheers for any help

Okay, first, make sure you have not written anything on it. Second, look at your Private messages.

The software is in there.

as long as you have not written anything on it like lhuser said, it is recoverable by recovery software. i think i know what he's talking about though.
