    Exclamation Need Help with data recovery
    Hey everybody, this is my first post. I've been a Microsoft user all my life and have recently bought a mac. I'm having a pretty tough time with it, feeling like a newb.
    anyways, here is what happened. I accidently formatted a partition on my external hard drive to mac journaled, it was previously FAT32. the problem is that I remembered later that it contained stuff that I really needed.
    I haven't used the partition since the format, not to write over the files I need.
    PLEASE HELP. this is very important.

    Down Under :D
    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    Welcome to mac forums....
    It's only bad news from here really I'm afraid!
    Formatting erases all data on the the partition, and if you have hundreds, maybe thousands of $ to spare, perhaps a data retrieval specialist may be able to get some or all your files back, but highly unlikely.
    You can try Data Recovery Software, Data Recovery Tools - Stellar Data Recovery
