How to Recover Formatted 4TB WD External Hard Drive

My 4TB WD hard drive stopped working, so I quickly formatted it so that Windows could recognize my hard drive. However, I failed to recover my data even though I tried 6 data recovery software. I wonder if there is any suggestion to help me recover my WD hard drive.
