    I encounter similar situation, except that I was the one destroying it myself. Fortunately I managed to recover most of the photos using this tool
    I managed to recover most(not all) because some of the files have already been overwritten.
    Another cheap (to be exact free) method is to download ubuntu live cd. There is a tool photorec, it will scan the whole hard disk and try to "guess" the original file header and rebuilt the file.
    Hope you can recover it!

    the US DoD uses a 7-pass algo.. anything lesser and they will believe that the data can still be recovered..

    if the data is that precious, then get a professional.. there are many who charge only based on the amount of data recovered..
    Actually, this is true. If you are fortunate, and the actual file data is not located in a high-write area of the drive (fingers crossed) you may still be able to get them back. It's not going to be cheap, but it may well be better than resigning everything to that big studio in the sky!

    Different software may find different files. I 'normally' try different software to have more chances of recovering. Try PCInspector also.
