Stop using the formatted NTFS partition, and don't save new files on the partition to avoid data loss. To recover data from the formatted partition, I recommend professional NTFS data recovery software. You could use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover formatted NTFS partitions from FAT, as the partition itself wasn't lost. To ensure a high data recovery rate, install EaseUS data recovery software on another drive instead of the formatted drive.
