How to Recover Mac Files after Formatting Macintosh HD

I lost a mailbox in Mac Mail.
Adobe Reader crashes when I open PDFs.
Google Chrome crashes when I launch it.
In Mac Mail, Safari, and many other applications, I get WebKitPluginHost crashes!
All this started after I installed the last round of updates and it seems that my HD is formatted. What can I do to recover all the files stored in my Mac?
I'm a bit peeved.
Thank you.
Is there a feasible way to recover Mac files after formatting? Surely, when you format a Macintosh HD, the file system of disk is replaced with a new empty file system. As long as you didn’t write any new files to the Mac hard drive, there are chances that you can retrieve all your previous files stored in Mac hard drive. The standard formatting only changes the index files rather than the really files. Therefore, although the formatted files are inaccessible, you can recover files from formatted Mac with the helps of data recovery applications like Data Recovery for Mac. Get it now to restore your entire file system.
