    +1 for Recuva.
    xxxxxxxxx looks like you have to buy it to rescue what it finds - not the case with Recuva.

    Pretty basic, but I've seen it happen before. Please don't be offended, but have you looked in the Recycle Bin?

    Stop using the hard drive right away if you want to recover anything. Connect it to another machine and run recovery apps. Or use a boot CD or boot USB.

    If you prefer a bootable USB key, download and run Linux Live USB Creator. Choose the Parted Magic distro, and it will download it and automatically create a bootable USB key.
    This CD (or key) contains many useful tools. You can partition, recover files, recover lost partitions, make disk images (by several different methods), transfer files between media, scan for viruses (It can serve as an Alternative Trusted Platform for search and elimination of rootkits and bootkits), examine and benchmark hardware, access the internet, and much more.
