    If they have been permanently deleted, then there is no hope that they can be recovered.

    It would help to know what files and how they were deleted.

    You can try an image recovery program like Recuva

    I agree with Derek. I've used Recuvva to recover lots of files. Not everything will be recoverable but a lot will. It takes several hours to run the scans so you might want to do it overnight or while your at work. One issue I did have with it is that sometimes the titles will be mixed up. (ex: a song with the title of an audiobook)
