Depends on how you deleted them. If only by emptying the recycle bin, then Restoration should do it:

as the more you use it the worse things get. If your files are in the recycle folder then a "right click -restore" will do it.
If they're not or the files were deleted by a program then Diodorus Siculus link looks worth a go. If the above does not work then you will need some serious data recovery software.

I have had results with GetDataBack click here on a very "distressed" drive. Before you buy recovery software phone the support people and describe your exact set-up. I advise this because some of the applications use low level drivers and the fact that your drive is external may matter.

Restoration is very good for this. Used it last week to recover from a deleted floppy.
