Hello, welcome to tomshardware. You can recover your files by using recovery tool. You can find a lot of freeware on the internet such as 4Card Recovery. But be careful, make sure your original data is not changed. You'd better do not put anything new on the hard drive before your files fully retrieved. Otherwise it will be very very hard to recover it, and you may loss it forever.
