    Yeah. There are programs that scan drives and recover files, I've never tried it after a reformat so I don't know if it would work. You can go to

    http://www.recovermyfiles.com/

    and try the free version. Look around because I used one that was like a beetle or some kind of scarab and it was free and it found files I lost off a flash drive. Good Luck.

    There still may be files recoverable if they were not overwritten. But all the space occupied by the new installation is probably overwriting most of them.
