There is a program called Restoration which was a free trial in PCA mag some time ago. I tried it and it was very good. Try searching Google for restoration sorry I can't remember the address. In the meantime try not to delete anything and overwrite the missing files. Good Luck.

There is software out there but it can be costly. A kind word for future reference always make more than one copy of your data, (overkill this but I make 6 copies)

then again if you click here you can get a trail version of a recovery utility.
