use another machine to purchase and download some data recovery software.

if it is your system partition (difficult to do so probably not) plug the drive into a separate machine and run the recovery software from there
If it is a data partition, then turning the machine on should not be a problem.

How do you accidentally format a partition.

Go try a recovery software:

Honestly, last weekend, I also accidentally formatted my drive that held some important videos made by my friend. Even though I knew a little about recovery stuff, I bravely try this free application to take a chance. Fortunately, it helped me restoring all of them back. Otherwise, I would blame myself for a long time. Therefore, you could try it.

Hi,
Have patience!!! Couple of days ago, I had accidentally formatted my USB drive and lost all the stored data from it. Then I tried hard drive recovery software which made data retrieval from accidentally formatted USB drive possible. This software also supports data recovery on other storage data storage device. Just follow the below links to try the software and get back your data from formatted data drive.

Best of luck, :)
