You need an EXPENSIVE clean room to do that.  And I don't mean a room you vacuumed well either.

Reference:
http://www.harddriverecovery.org/clean_room.html
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clean_room (Note the Class 1000 US FED STD 209E information in the table here; yes it's cancelled, but that is what was needed/used or better you can expect).  And some places (see next link) say you need a more expensive class 100 Clean room.

Try using
R-Studio it is a family of powerful and cost-effective undelete and data recovery software. Empowered by the new unique data recovery technologies, it is the most comprehensive data recovery solution for recovery files from FAT12/16/32, NTFS, NTFS5 (created or updated by Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista), Ext2FS/Ext3FS (LINUX file systems) and UFS1/UFS2 (FreeBSD/OpenBSD/NetBSD file systems) partitions. It functions on local and network disks, even if such partitions are formatted, damaged or deleted. Flexible parameter settings give you absolute control over data recovery.
