Answers :

Formatting the memory card automatically erases all the files in the memory card.
it's like restoring the memory card to factory settings to be compatible with your camera.

when you format the memory card using the camera the camera erases everything then creates folders that the camera needs to store pictures in your memory card.

you can try to look for software that can TRY to retrieve the images but i cannot assure you that this will work
