Ya, seagate tools just quick formated the WRONG new hard drive, litterally, selected my new unformated HD and it formated the one all my music.

I know there have been threads about htis, but what is the best image recovery software? It was only a quick format, not a low level one.

Relax , I have just recovered a damaged partition at work , with over a million pounds worth of accounts on it.

My situation was that i formatted on purpose to renew the NTFS file structure and then used this tool.

EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard Professional 3.3.4

It was a total success, other restoration apps failed to find anything.

absolution, when it reformated..was it the long 30+ minutes? or did it only take like 1-2 minutes to reformat?

this one is the best one you can ever get your hand on..
There is no recovery software that comes close

http://www.ontrackdatarecovery.com/

the price is steep.. but you can get it from other places (lee)
Ive used it twice, once on a disk I formated and once on a disk that was damaged.
It recovered EVERYTHING from both disks.
