Hello there! Welcome to Geeks to Go!

If you are talking about USB being a Flash Drive, then no, the data should not have been touched.
Once a partition is deleted, all data is gone.

Have you reformatted your hard disk or have you reformatted your USB flash stick?

PhotoRec or Testdisk are good choice for recovering data.
Can you explain exactly what you did?
Did you delete a partition on the usb drive, or delete a partition on your harddisk and reinstall Windows?

If you have data loss, even after using recovery programs, then that means the data is gone. Although, the data may be recoverable if you tried hard enough.

I have successfully used ZAR Data recovery software on a both a flash drive and a camera memory stick. I also tried it on my hard drive (as a test of the software). On the hard drive, it recovered every picture that was on the drive. This means every little picture that is used in every program. Beware if it recovers what you want from the hard drive, you will get a lot of pictures.

The software is free and is stated for digital camera memory, but as I said, it worked on my hard drive.

PhotoRec is also very good at recovering files from a formatted or deleted partition.
Here is a tutorial: http://www.cgsecurit...ec_Step_By_Step
