If you have backup of your files then you can restore from backup. If not, your only chance is to find an "undelete" program, although there is probably small chance to get all your data back. Do "undelete" search in Google.
My backup messed up majorly!!!!!!!!! Is there ANY way to retrieve lost files?????????
I'm using older version 1.5.3, please someone help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We had a similar problem with my girlfriends harddrive. It simply stopped working and we tried everything. We even gave it to specialists to retrieve the data. They didn't managed it however. Then I remembered that the data had been on the computer once, but the computer had been reinstalled... We used some special software however and managed to retrieve some parts of the harddrve. I recommend you search for free software to retrieve data in google and you'll find some alternatives.
