move number one is to stop using that computer RIGHT NOW!!

using the computer will let windows over write the data, this is bad thing.

your next move is to get a copy of midnight commander or other data recovery tools.

lost and found is an older program that i have use with good results.

how important are the files?

there are data recover services that will charge you as much as $2000 but will have much more change of finding you file that you do.

final data is a free program I have used and it works well. It was on a PC world disc sometime ago.
