Data Recovery companies can't recover overwritten data from modern hard drives. What wasn't overwritten might be salvageable, but it's probably not much at this point.

comment Can I enlarge OS C: drive of my Windows 8 PC?
Windows Disk Management can do this if there is disk space available. I highly recommend against using anything with "Norton" branding. Even if you had to reformat (which you don't) the tools (dism) in Windows setup would allow you to image the drive and write the image to the reformatted drive.
