Tried to transfer my PS4 data from my external SD drive (WD elements 1 TB) to my PS5. Made a stupid mistake. I accidentally format the drive before I transfered the data to my PS5. Is there anything I can do to recover this?

You can try some of the free data recovery software like Recuva.

In the mean time you should stop using the HDD, the new data might make the deleted data unrecoverable.
