I have just installed a fresh copy of Windows as my previous version was corrupted. My drive C was formatted whereas my other drives are still there. I want to get some of my files back from my drive C. Is there any possible way to do this, such as with file recovery software like Remo Recover?
Well from their page I would say it is worth a shot, however it depends greatly on how the drive was formatted I would presume.
If a real format was completed then the drive was wiped completely. If a partial format was completed then the allocation table was wiped and there is a potential that Remo could find something.
At this point I would say you have a 50/50 shot.
files that were not overwritten by your OS install MAY be recoverable. in this case look at this document explaining TestDisk and Photorec. I usually use Ubuntu Rescue Remix for data recovery tasks, but there are many live CDs available with these two tools. PhotoRec is probably your best bet since you've already overwritten a good portion of your old partition.
