    Follow these simple steps & you might be able to recover all of your data.

    Warning: Do not transfer any file to your formatted hard drive you might lose precious data.

    Note: You will need to have a spare hard drive of 1 TB or 1 TB free space in your computer to recover that data.

    Step 1: Download & Install Recuva from link below:

    Step 2: Connect your hard drive to the computer you installed Recuva on.

    Step 3: Run Recuva -> Select Deep Scan -> Select Other (All Files)

    Step 4: Once it finishes its Scan it will show you the results.

    Step 5: The files with Status as Excellent are the only files which can be recovered. Select all those files.

    Step 6: Click Recover... -> select where you need to put the recovered files

    The size of free space you require depends on how much files you recover from the hard drive.

    There are many open source exe's that will recover data from formatted hard drive
    I have some links you can try
    If the lost data is important for you then I would recommend you to go for paid software rather than free version, it may corrupt your files
