I think if you did format it, you are screwed cause formatting first and foremost totally annialates all file tables so sorry dude; its toast.
I read somewhere that it might be recovered doing this:
there they say that you can regenerate the index. For clarity, the original filesystem was reiserFS, and it contained about 6 GB of data. At the time I formatted it, it was mounted as /mnt/files. It was formatted with reiserFS, and after I realized that I formatted that drive and not the other, I quickly mounted it RO and made an image of that drive, then unmounted it to where I am now.
