First, I'm sorry this happened because it's happened to me...more than once.

Don't format it.  Programs like Recuva and Reclaime can help you scrub the drive for anything recoverable.

I'm hoping you didn't use Windows new format ReFS because when that one gets hosed you get nothing back.  At all.

I'm sticking with NTFS simply for fear of a RAW drive.  

And if you're using Drivepool duplicate duplicate duplicate (I usually set it to x3 but if I get enough space maybe even x4)
