Default Urgent! Hard drive image restoration

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.

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
Ive used it twice, once on a disk I formated and once on a disk that was damaged.
It recovered EVERYTHING from both disks.
