This is a discussion on Recovery help within the Mac Support forums, part of the Tech Support Forum category. My hd has been wiped and the os reinstalled. I am loooking for help to see if I can recover
If you wiped your HDD and did not reinstall, there would be a great chance you could recover. But since you have Reinstalled over the top, it has overwritten the data you had previously.
You can try the free https://download.cnet.com/MiniTool-Mac-Data-Recovery/3000-2248_4-75337845.html k. But again, if you have reinstalled, all the data that would be on the hard drive in that position on the platters is now overwritten.

If you wiped the drive that had your data on the chances are slim. You would have to send it out to a drive recovery shop. If you had a backup program to the cloud you could at least recover some stuff. Did you use anything like dropbox?
Any way to get back my hidden recovery partition? Laptop model: Acer Aspire 4745G
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit & Linux
I did make sets of Recovery DVDs by using the bundled software. I can now do system recovery with the DVDs I created. However, I still want to restore my recovery partition.
I NEVER delete and NEVER modify my recovery...
