Go here and get GetDataBack

http://www.runtime.org/

There are versions for FAT32 and NTFS.  The demo version will show you what files can be recovered.

Try the free version of GetDataBack.  If it says it can recover the files and folder then buy it and use it.

dbruntonCommented:
No, that's the files it has found.  It has not restored anything.  That's just to show you what it can do.  They want money for it to do the restore.

Buy it, get the license, run it and it will restore the data.
