Your Inspector File Recovery program scans the sectors of the drive and finds file fragments. Usually you can recover these, but it depends if all of the fragments of the file have been overwritten by other data or not. If it has, its gone for good, otherwise it may (or may not) be recoverable in full.
Whether the files are retrievable depends exclusively on whether the parts of the drive they were stored on have been overwritten. Usually recovery media repartitions and then reformats the drive before copying a whole bunch of data across to it. Therefore it may be possible that if there wasn't a lot of docs/programs added since you originally bought the machine, recovery has wiped them all out and what PC Inspector has found are the fragments which are missing but the key fragments (to recover the documents fully) are long gone.
