    Default Data Recovery

    A full format in Vista or 7 can be destructive and actually wipe your drive (fill it full of zeros). There is no recovery after that.

    How long did the format take? If it took a long time, this is what it was doing.

    You can try a drive recover with Recover My Files - but I suspect that there is not longer anything to recover.
