Recover Linux files using windows system

#1 Post by NGiannis »

Dear Sirs,

I have accidentally formatted my hdd.
The hdd with my useful files was in a linux ext2.
I accidentally format it in NTFS as I decide to use windows system. I made a quick format.
The formatted hdd is an external storage not my bootable disk. I have not written anything over it.

Can I recover my files in windows system?
I tried an application but unreadable files are generated.

Thank you,
