How to Restore Partition Information?

“I had partitioned my Windows 7 hard drive into two and wanted to create another logical partition. I opened Disk Management utility and continued with suggested steps. Somehow, during the process I formatted local disk D instead of formatting newly created partition that has erased complete information from D drive. Is there any possible way to recover partition information that is formatted on Windows OS? Please help.”
