The chances are very slim as the is a strong possibility the data has already been overwritten, but if it can be recovered then you can use this free program called Recuva which you can get here

Download the latest version on the right

Then once done, install it and run a scan making sure to check deep scan

It can take many hours but then it is done thoroughly so that if it can be recovered, this program will recover it.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
