I hate to be the bearer of bad news, however the chances are your files are indeed gone.
If you want to try it yourself, then I have used a piece of software called Recuva which can be downloaded from here: http://www.piriform....filterBy=Recuva
Please note that this worked for me, however that was on files I had deleted manually so I'm not sure if it would work on a drive following a system recovery
There is however a small glimmer of hope. There are companies who offer a forensic service, and by that I mean they can possibly restore some or all of your files. They somehow deep scan a drive and recover what they can. I'm not sure of the exact in's and out of how it works.
My advice would be to contact them as soon as possible, as the earlier they look into it, the more chance they have of sucess.
They may tell you it's not possible to do, however it would do no harm to enquire.
I'd would try the professionals first and see what they say.
I hope they give you good news.

But as far as I'm aware, their service isn't exactly cheap!!!!
