    If it was a Bitlocker drive and you formatted it, you can kiss the data good-bye.

    A classic "Catch-22." :) You formatted the drive so you need a data recovery program to try to get many of the files back. But the drive was entirely encrypted. So you first have to run Bitlocker to unencrypt the files. But before you run Bitlocker you have to run a data recovery program.

    Perhaps the FBI or CIA have equipment to recover (some of) the data, but it would really, really cost you to engage their services.
