stop using the drive immediately if you can, otherwise your overwriting 
whatever your trying to recover.  remove the drive and mount on another 
system and try using photorec or testdisk to recover whatever it is your 
looking for.  chances are most of it is still there, just gonna take 
some digging to find it.
