It was sad... really sad of all that 500gb I had of anime I probably only watched 300gb~ I blame everything on recovery console!! I decided never to mess with it again.
For the future.. if you ever have to format again, install the smallest operating system you've got and use any data recovery program (reads data off hard drive not from it's FAT table)... the scanning takes long, but you should be able to recover most of data.

PS: Thnx for "How to become a computer expert" guide
