Yes, it will be very expensive "IF" any of your old files can be recovered.

Stop using the computer right now, and contact one of the drive recovery services.

The less you try and do on your own, the easier it will be for the recovery service to recover any files.

We are talking a very deep dive directly onto the platter of the drive. Expect to spend upward of $1000 US to recover your files.

I do not have a specific recovery service to recommend. Look at how long the company has been in business and user ratings of the company..

When you contact the service, be upfront about what was done to the drive so that they can give you a realistic estimate of what they may be able to do.
