In the meantime, DONT do anything that may write to the hdd. You'll have less chance of getting it back. Try Recuva as well

shadow copy explorer is another free program that is a bit faster than glarys which takes ages to run but will find it.

Firstly, as Speedy said DO NOT create an documents or move any data on the root drive that My Documents is in.

Download this zip file to a DIFFERENT LOCATION to where My Documents root drive is:

Extract everything, then run recuva.exe
Let it do a deep search
