Default Accidently deleted partition

I accidently deleted the partition on my external hard drive while doing a reinstall of Windows. I had the drive still plugged in and when I was deleted the partition on I though was my hard drive on my computer, I choose to delete the partition on my external. Is there anyone that knows how if possible to restore this lost data?

Default ...hmm....

did you do a quick format? because that will affect whether or not you can retrieve those files or not....also...how are your drives formatted?

Well...i googled some information, and came up with this....try these programs? its worth a shot! Good luck!...
