I've done it before with an SD Card and got all the photos back so you might be in luck.

Don't update the software once its installed thumbs up

Good luck

I think it's also worth mentioning that 'overwritten' data is almost impossible to retrieve...

If the data was on the master/boot/only hard drive you would be safest to place it as slave in another machine and run the recovery tool from that machine.
(Recuva is apparently quite good)

Good luck.

no its not
it depends on a few factors
one being the reason it has vanished
the other what tools you use to retrieve it
i have retrieved data after a reformat of a os

tools to use
not free so get a torrent

I think there's a difference... but, whatever, I stand corrected.

Just a point of interest though - http://www.r-studio.com/
