If you formatted the Hard Drive and or re-installed Windows over the top, the chances of recovery are almost zero.
If data has overwritten the file you won't be able to recover it, but you might try Recuva
, a free program, which claims to be able to recover files from damaged or formatted drives.
Worth a shot.
If something helped, or didn't, take a minute to let us know.
Thanks aren't always necessary, but are always appreciated.
