    Did THE misstake.

    I formatted the wrong HD. the hd was FAT 32 and after the format its Mac os Journal. I did a simple format, the data should still be on the HD.
    I have not installed any new data on the HD.

    Is it possible to recover all the files ? index tree? root ?

    Which is the best recover program ? I tried data rescue, it found alot of files. all the files was renamed etc.

    please help

    I suspect a windows utility would work best, given that you went from FAT to HFS+

    google norton utiltiies and such to see if you get any hits
