Lost Files on My WD Passport Hard Drive, Help

"I have been using a WD My Passport external hard drive for two years. It's a backup drive that stores all my personal files. Recently, the system reminds me of hard drive not formatted error every time when I connect it the computer. And one time I mistakenly choose "yes" when it asked me if I want to format the hard disk. The result is that the WD My Passport hard drive is formatted and I lost almost 500 pictures and 200 video files. Is there any program can help me recover data from WD My Passport hard drive after format?
