Lost system files when disc clean-up

Recently I used the disc clean-up utility and it selected a load of files to delete. I continued with the opperation and somehow it deleted certain system files. It also deleted all of my programs and personal files. How is this possible ?
I have a new drive now with new system installed, but when I try to retreive and files from my old drive it only shows the folders and no files. Nothing works. Can I retreive these files or are they lost forever ?

Try running Drive Rescue click here from your working drive.

Was this Windows Disk Cleanup? If so, I'm baffled as to how this happened.
