We recently had to restore some deleted files for a client. We purchased and used Easy Recovery Professional. It is an expensive program but it has since been a life saver. A local computer repair company might either own or have a recommendation for data recovery.

Jbasto, The above responses are good ones but let me add a few thoughts. I am assuming these files are very important to you otherwise the thought of losing them would not bring you to tears. I am also assuming that you know what you are talking about when you say "30 Gigs have been deleted" and that you are not just confused about were the files are located. So, having said that:

If I were in your shoes I would stop using the computer immediately, remove the hard drive and use a different computer or preferable a professional to get the files back (since theoretically you could "infect" another computer with whatever has been unleashed on yours; although unlikely).

Here is my reasoning:
Since you didn't expect this "program" to delete all your files I can safely assume at this point you don't know exactly what is running on your computer and what might happen next. That means this program could still do who knows what to your computer data.

You might be thinking: "What could be worse than deleting all my files!" The answer is: it could write NEW data over your deleted files. It is much more difficult (if not impossible) to restore deleted files if new data has been written on top of the same physical location on the hard drive.

Also you are not just trying to recover a few photos but a whopping 30 gigs of data which complicates the matter a bit I would say. You can still use the programs mentioned above if you want to.

That's just my two cents. Sorry about the your data. Others may have more to add.

PS: After all this blows over do yourself a favor: go buy an external USB hard drive and back up your data at reasonable intervals. Even if this renegade program would not have deleted your data it is a guarantee that your hard drive will die one day and all data may be unrecoverable even with all the money in the world.

Lordz is correct in best practice is to install the tool on a differnet PC and slave your drive to it. There is another alternative that would coincide with Lord zule. If you were to buy the external hard drive now you can choose to install the Easy Recovery files to that drive to run. The less you write over on the original disk the more you can recover. I would also recommend a professional if available. Every shop I have worked in has a pc setup with easy access to slave a drive and run such tools. Also, incase you don't find everything the first time be sure to restore the files to a different drive (the new USB would be perfect place).
