How to get pictures back if you hit the format button

Answers :

Unfortunately, once you format the disk, the pictures are gone. Formatting erases everything and gets the disk ready to receive more pictures. Sorry to have to relay the bad news.
Format means:
'Erase absolutely everything, write over the remains to test every section of memory and arrange the memory for new pictures'.
Sorry, there is nothing to recover.
