This Person says to try "Restoration" (quoted from link)

there are various utilities available to recover deleted data, even data emptied from the Recycle Bin. Some of them are even free to download. One of the most popular for Windows is Restoration. One word of caution, though, this program will find just about everything that you've ever deleted from your PC, including files deleted from program uninstalls, so if you know the extension (DOC, MP3, etc.) of the file that you deleted, narrow your search to only files with that extension. Once you find your file select it, and then click on "Restore by Copying." If you have a file on your hard drive with the same name, make sure to save the restored file on an alternate drive, CDROM, floppy or flash disk so that your currently saved file is not overwritten!

Of course, Restoration is free, so there are no guarantees in recovering your data

I have a question the program saids it can completley delete files and make it "almost" impossible to restore the files. In what ways could you attempt restore them after they have been deleted by Restoration.

Then you are SOL.

If you are lucky a HDD restoration place can find it...and a steep cost.

Of course my preffereed method of killing data is to hit the HDD with a seldgehammer....
