You might want to try this program HERE
if that doesnt want to work, search around for a program called "Get Data Back". It is top of the line product which can get 90% of lost files back, even after a format. If written over by DOD standards, then it might be impossible to retrieve.
Is your External over 127GiBs? If so, then, this happend because you loaded XP without SP1 intergrated. Meaning, your master boot record has been overwritten. Try locating your old boot record, and copying it over the new one for that drive befor attemting to use "Get Data Back". "Get Data Back" should be the last resort.
In any case, to prevent this from happening again, I suggest you unhook the external before formatting C:, load XP, then SP1, then hook your External back up, se if it retains its record.
