recover files deleted too big for recycle bin

  erkmatrix 12:51 12 Aug 2007

Is it possible to recover files that windows said was too big and would be permantly deleted, with my external hard going on the blink and pc doesn't now recognize it anymore I have lost hours of music files that I'd put on the external drive.

Just wondered if there was a tool to get them back, I've tried Drive rescue but doesn't find the broken drive and can only find deleted from reycle bin files which the ones I deleted where in a batch and was too big for reycle bin

Anyone else any suggestions
