If they reformatted the whole drive (both partitions), you will have to invest a huge amount of time and money to stand any chance of recovering data anywhere on the drive.

If they only formatted Drive C:, installing Windows back to drive C: should be all that you need to do to gain access to drive D:

Which version of Windows was originally installed?

go to click here and search for "getdataback". its shareware so you will only be able to open the pics and copy them you wont be able to copy a whole folder without registering.

YOU WILL NEED 2 HARDDRIVES TO USE THIS as it cannot recover data from the drive its be installed to.

Try this small programme I found it quite usful

For 9x/NT/2K/XP. Restore deleted files that are no longer in the Recycle Bin! When a file is deleted from your computer, its contents aren’t immediately destroyed. Its hard drive space is made available for use, but until that space is overwritten, your old data is usually intact. Restoration by Brian Kato <click here> recovers such files on either FAT or NTFS partitions. Only 406 KB (or 200 KB for XP or 2K), it fits easily on a floppy, or runs from your hard drive. Generally, the sooner you try to restore a file, the more successful you’ll be.
