How to recover all files from 500GB external hard drive on a mac?

Help! I accidentally formatted my external hard drive and lost all my information on it. I haven't done anything to is since, so I hope it's not too late to recover my files. Among them were pictures, music, and other records. I have attempted to use stellar phoenix for mac, but wasn't successful. I'm confused on how to use it.

Could someone help! I'd really appreciate it!

Update:

Is there a free recovery software out there, and if you can give me some steps on how to use it.

    There are some free software available u can search them on google but I do not believe in free software as it will end up messing my computer with virus and spywares and whether it recovers your data intact or not is not guaranteed there are chances that u end up loosing your precious data. So I look for cheap and good software. For recovery software, I bought one before called Kernel for Macintosh, good thing is that it's one time payment and then it allows me to use forever. Take a look if you do not mind paying to get back your data, U can also download d trial version from http://www.datarecoverymac.com/

    Using trial version u can preview d data recovered but to save it u hav to purchase the software

    http://www.salvagedata.com/hard-drive-recovery/ If your hard drive is one listed, and you're willing to pay what they want, that's the service you need. This is a last resort, as you want a free program to find the overwritten files.
