If you just formatted your hard disk, something worth a try as first thing is TESTDISK:

Be aware that if you re-build your filesystem and it contains a virus, it is possible that you re-trigger it.

To recover single files from RAW data, you can try using it's accomapanying app PHOTOREC.

TestDisk is alright if you're running a Unix-based system and have no other options as far as freeware goes. However, if you're running Windows, Recuva is excellent!

There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.

Ontrack or Testdisk. While Recuva is nice, keep in mind that it only works in Windows, so it's not useful to recover data from DOS or cmdline.
