Sony A7RII Data Recovery after accidentally formatted SD card inside the camera

I have spent all night trying to recover files from an accidentally formatted card inside the Sony a7RII.

Now I know exactly that IT IS NOT POSSIBLE to recover data after successfully completed format operation inside the camera.

But to know that you don´t need to use any recovery programs it is enough to open HEX editor and check the card and you will see that everywhere is ff

In my personal point of view card formatting in that way is overneeded. In my case I could recover all information if it supposes to be just a quick format option.

I don´t have any idea why Sony is doing that?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I think as a compromise it should an option for the owner to choose which format to use a Quick One or the Full one.
