Lost Data

  DAKAR 18:50 29 Nov 2010

Hi all
I have done something really silly ....
I have a external floppy drive and I keep passwords etc on floppy,yesterday I tried to open the floppy disc but it would not open because I had uninstalled microsoft works so I tried to open it in media player but had no joy and not thinking I pressed delete and now all the disc appears wiped.
Is ther any way to recover the contents of the disc or is that it.
I am running windows XP sp3
Any advice will be really appreciated

Hi guys
I dont know if I am doing something wrong but I have tried all the links and I cannot understand what is meant to happen,I get a lot of codes and then shown to a web site to buy the product I am a bit concerned that I might pay for something and then find it wont do what I need.
Any other fixes that might work?
