I accidentally formatted my Ubuntu partition in Windows 7 (quick format). Is there any way to recover the partition and data?

It's rather hopeless, but try PhotoRec and TestDisk. fsck will most likely not work: at best, it will complain because it doesn't find an ext4 filesystem, at worst it will cause more destruction.

You're probably screwed. Try fsck -f -t ext# and see if that finds anything.

TestDisk is likely your best option on this one; it's available on the RIPLinux live CD.
