Extract HD Movie Files

“I connected my Camera SD card to Windows system to transfer all HD movies present in it. After successful completion of transfer process, I formatted SD card as it was infected by malware. This affected my system too. To get rid of malware I scanned my hard disk with an antivirus tool. Scanning by anonymous antivirus software has removed few HD movies along with other virus infected files without any notification. I do not possess any backup copy of HD movies that I had recently moved from SD card. Is there any solution to get back lost HD movie files from Windows hard drive? Thanks in advance!!!”
