    If the data on the drive is important to you you probably are best seeking a data recovery specialist.

    You have seriously jeopardised your chances of full recovery by writing data to the drive when you reinstalled the operating system not to mention using the computer afterwards. You may get lucky and will be able to achieve a partial recovery or really lucky and recover all your files.

    You're going to need another hard drive larger than the one you currently have in the machine and access to another computer to do the recovery as doing the recovery directly to the drive will definitely calls more data loss.
