Download Testdisk - click here onto a different PC

Connect your hard drive using to that PC and run Testdisk. Will take a while to scan the disk, possibly overnight.

You could try running Testdisk but be prepared for it to take a long time and it may not recover the files you want since new data has now been written to the drive.
