  1. You didn't keep your files backed up on a separate hard drive or DVD media?
    All hard drives can fail at any time so you must be prepared for that event by having at least two copies of everything at separate locations.

    I wouldn't even dream of not having my data backed up.

    Try Easus Partition Recovery:
  2. Easeus makes some decent partition recovery software. Just google easus.
