Hello,

I have accidently formatted a hard drive that had important info on it, is there a program that can recover the files?

There are various software packages available that claim to recover files from formatted hard disks. Here is one possibility (@ $50 USD) for Windows:

No matter what recovery software you try, make sure you do not make any further changes to the reformatted HD like reinstalling the operating system.

If you did a "quick" format, which only takes a couple of minutes, the prospects are reasonably good. OTOH, if you did a "full" format which would have taken much longer, the prospects are very dim.
