Can you recover files on formatted SD card?

So, my cameraman carelessly reformatted an SD card before I had fully imported footage to Final Cut.

It looks like this.

When I first imported the footage into Final Cut, all the files played but once I took the SD card out and my cameraman formatted it, and i put the SD card back again some files got delinked. So, some files carried over. And some didn't.

The SD was reformatted yesterday. And we have added some files to the card now as we shot footage but none of the original file names have been written over.
is there anyway, I can get this footage back?

I had this come up once a few years ago. I formatted a card that had not been backed up, but did not record over it. I used Rescue pro Deluxe and got all the files I needed off the card without problem.

I think the OP was also saying they started shooting with the card again after the format. They may be able to get some of it back though.

I the card was formatted and had additional new material recorded to it, then some of the desired files may be over written and useless. Rescue Pro deluxe will recover files on a formatted card, but that files that have been overwritten, just to be clear.

I would run that app anyway which will get back anything that was not recorded over.
