There's a good chance that your MFT is corrupted. That's not too terrible of a thing because there are plenty of programs you can get that will read all the files manually. One good place to look is http://www.windowsdatarecovery.com/

If your data was there and you didn't run it in a drying machine full of magnets, it should still be there.
