I don't know what to say. What recovery software were you using?

You could always try booting from a Linux Live cd, such as Knoppix and looking through your files that way.

Note: The latest release of Knoppix has native NTFS read/write support.

#1 rule to data recovery, don't use the computer on which the data was lost.

I agree with the live distro idea. Use a thumb drive, the bigger the better, to extract your data. Unfortunately, most windows based data restoration programs, in my experience, have a high rate of potentially making things worse, which leads to me throwing fragile things at high velocity. Definitely go with knoppix, it's like the can opener of distros.
