What program recovers formatted data?

Well, stupid me formated and lost IMPORTANT FILES. Actually, bunch of ebooks that I really would like to get back!

Well, I have seen people (on tv) use programs to find files even after the hard drive is formated. It would be VERY cool, if you guys could let me know what program this is. Linux or Windows, i dont care, i just need a program to help me out.

And if there is no program that does this, I will be doing to do this manually, but where can i find information on getting formatted data back?

I would REALLY appreciate if you help me out.

sorry to tell u this but the min u formated, ur files are dead to the os becouse u remaped the fat/ntfs table and therfor those files cant be recovered from windows/linux thing is those files arent really deleted they are still on the harddrive (unless u did a low level format wich u didnt.) but u cant recover them using a program thats why recover company exsist they have special devices to recover data out of the hdd,but if u only deleted the files and want to recover them u can use the norton system utiltis or a free program called Restoration
