Solution for hard drive quick formatted data recovery

questionQuestion: I have a  640GB External Desktop Hard Drive which is too heavy about 1.5 kg. I decided to sell it but before selling it, I transferred all the data on it to my laptop and then I deleted them from the External Hard Drive. During back up it asked me "there are other files under this name, would you like to replace it," Yes, Yes to all, no, not to all which I clicked on No. After back up I checked the transferred data I saw that the older is full. Then I did quick formatting. I was wondering if I can unformat external hard drive to get back lost files.

Sadly after one week that I wanted to use a PDF file, I noticed that most of my files are replaced and instead of 100GB data I had 10GB and this spoiled my New Year.

Desperately I was searching the internet to find a free data recovery that I found a Chinese website. They gave me a Key Code for a free software which is called *** data recovery. I recovered my quick formatted  data but I can't open any of them.

I have loads of PDF files, films, pictures, word documents that I need them to finish my PhD.
