    Try the free recovery program "Recuva"

    http://www.piriform.com/recuva/download

    It is free. Do not use the external drive at all, until you try the recovery. Using the drive will cause more items to be overwritten, giving less recovery possibilities.

    Yes, you can get them back.

    For $29 to $50 or so you can immediately buy and download various recovery programs. See, when a file is 'deleted' the file is not really erased - just the name of the file and where it lives in removed from the hard drive's directory. Recovery programs look at the whole disk from front to back and then give you a chance to copy any whole files it finds to a new drive.

    DO NOT copy anything new to that drive! That would be the kiss of death to all your data.

    I use IOIO Recovery - it $39. Here is a link. You will not be disappointed with this program. http://www.iolo.com/products/search-and-recover/
