recovering data from a newly formatted hard drive

Has anyone had any experience with programs that recover data from a newly formatted hard drive?  There seem to be a lot of programs out there to do this, but, a) do they work, and b) which one worked best for you?

Re: recovering data from a newly formatted hard drive

Ive had so and so success with a freeware utility called "Recuva"

Its from the makers of CCleaner.

I believe that is against Best Buy's Policy.

 

You need your password before they can start working on something.

 

There are, however, programs that can do that.
