It shouldn't be a problem as any good computer owner has back ups.

And it is obvious you didn't.

There are bootable programs (Linux live maybe) that can recover data.

and I doubt it "formated" you, fdisk and check the partition type, see if it says unknown.

I'm thinking your drive is trashed, not formatted.
