Default Need a good data recovery utility.

I mistakenly nuked a drive with lots of data on it. Good thing is 99% of it is not important. But for the stuff that is important, I cant seem to find a good data recovery tool. Can someone point me in the right direction?

As in nuked I mean i simply did a quick reformat.

I've used Active FileRecovery and it did a decent job...
