Accidentally, i formatted my F Drive which is of nearly 40GB of data. Now i want to recover the entire data in the F drive as it is.

Could anyone suggest me the free and reliable software for doing the entire job?

Tough call. Maybe Recuva can do the job. But don't expect too much. http://filehippo.com/download_recuva/

And here is another option: http://www.paragon-software.com/home/rk-express/

Personally I don't think there is a chance in ---- of retrieving data after that scenario.

A free program to recover all files from a formatted drive... does not exist, AFAIK.
Data recovery businesses... and of course law enforcement and other such government agencies... possess such programs, but they're not typically available to you and I, and they're certainly not free.

My experience is that once you have 'Accidentally' formatted a drive and have written again you really have lost the data for good.
If you did this but did not have a back up then all is lost.

A lesson learned. Never let accidents happen, that is the first 'risk assessment'

Did you do a quick format, or a full format?

If it was quick then do try recuva.
