Recovering from an accidental quick format

The boot section of system drive kept corrupting and I bought a new hard drive (and another dedicated SSD for the new copy of Windows) to replace it. However I got my drives mixed up when I went to copy my old saved games, photos, and documents. I accidentally quick formatted my old drive. Are there any recommendations out there on restoring the drive so I can pull what I need off of it? It's not really worth spending the $50-100 that most recovery software seems to cost. The only program I've even been able to get to actually do anything is TestDisk PhotoRec, and it's not going to pull all the data I need nor do I want to sort thru 10,000 recovery folders full of random files. Is there a way to restore the drive in a more orderly and complete fashion? Any help or cheap/freeware recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Don't have any freeware, but Ontrack EasyRecovery Pro will do it easily.

$80 is a bit too much for saved games, text files, and photos.

For some reason none of my drives are showing up in the program. I have my AV turned off and it has admin access.
