Unformatting a disk volume

    I accidentally formatted a disk volume, can I still get the information that was on it back?

    · In order to maximize the chances of unformatting the disk, stop using it immediately. Turn off the system (safely) if possible.
    · Obtain an unformatting utility and run it, following its directions.
