There is a good chance that almost all your data is recoverable. BUT stop using the disk you're trying to save data from. Everytime you use it you are overwriting your old data. You will probably need to get yourelf some data recovery software. I used GetDataBack by Runsoft recently and was very happy with it. There is another thread going on what other proggies people use for this, do some googling before you buy.

When you do the recovery you will need to install the application on another drive and save the data on a different drive from the one you're recovering from.
