Before you do any forensic work, slide the read only "lock" so you don't accidentally overwrite any data with the various tools you're about to try. –  skub Jan 9 '12 at 5:05

I would recommend Testdisk and PhotoRec http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TestDisk. It's free and I got very good results with Testdisk and bad hard disks. In fact it save me to buy a replacement disk.

PhotoRec is pretty good, but it does not retain filenames which may or may not be a huge issue. –  Synetech Jan 9 '12 at 3:51
