If you can boot to safe mode, then you really didn't format your HD. You'll have to explain that a little better.

Was your website only on your local computer? Or do you have it hosted somewhere else too? If the latter just FTP into your host server and copy your files back to your hard drive.

I have an HP machine (stop laughing) and it's possible to recover your system files without erasing your data files. So which one did you do? Also, in the past on my IBM machine (it's a dinosaur) I was able to retrieve some data that I thought was lost. I actually had formatted that machine twice (using a Windows 98 disk) and was still able to recover something using "Forensic Recovery". I think that's the name. Just do a search for "data recovery software". Some work better than others. All hope may not be lost. But next time you should be periodically saving to your server :) Good luck!
