you haven't mentioned whether your encrypted folder is in a dedicated partition or not. if it is on a dedicated partition, you can install cryptkeeper again and access the folder by mounting it using the cryptkeeper software. if it is on the same drive thatt you have formatted to reinstall ubuntu, then sorry.....you could have lost your data. you should have taken back up of that complete folder atleast.

While formatting i didn't touch the partition in which i had put encrypted folder.
Thanks..

then simply mount the folder using cryptkeepr by selecting the "import
encfs folder" option.

Can you help with this problem?
