Creating a new partition may well overwrite the files you are hoping to recover. It is best to do nothing whatever to the drive until you have your files safely copied to another location.

Connecting the drive to another computer is one way to recover the files. Another is to use some bootable medium that can access the files and copy them, such as UBCD3Win, Ubuntu, or Knoppix.

I would install the drive as a slave in another computer and retrieve the data.
