    Did you finish installing Lycoris, if so, you probably should try a professional data recovery service. Try here

    Ouch... if you erased everything and then installed on top... no chance that your data is left... sorry but that the hard reality... if you DID NOT install on top of the formated drive, then theres hope...

    either u get another drive and get a data recovery tool (windows solution)
    or you get a liveCD and get a datarecovery tool that runs under linux
