What have you tried? –  Redandwhite Mar 6 '13 at 10:35
If I were in your place, I wouldn't touch the HDD with any software or even power it on. What I would do would be disconnecting it from the motherboard right away and bringing it to a data restoration company for a payed service, sure only if I had any valuable data to restore. –  Desmond Hume Mar 6 '13 at 11:57

Free data recovery software is a great deal better: then paid shovelware. –  Ramhound Mar 6 '13 at 12:50

Use Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional 6.2 - Advanced Recovery, ignore MFT, or use MFT 2 table. Or use R-Studio 5+ or 6+ version.

The basic idea is to find the $MFT or a copy, $MFT2. In an extreme case, ignore the file table. The most severe variant search files of a certain type of information without the use of the file table. Good luck, make a backup.
