Recover Data from a Reformatted Drive

I unintentionally put Manjaro onto the HDD containing my backup files while trying to install it. A few seconds after hitting install, I realized my error and shut down my computer. Then I encountered the 'Unable to access location' error after I reinstall Manjaro. Can I recover the data from this reformatted drive?
