    Accepted Solution

    You simply cannot recover data that was overwritten. On a laptop that has been in use for 6 months, chances are extremely high that most deleted data has been completely or partly overwritten by now.

    For the files that still are recoverable, check out these two free tools:
    Recuva -
    PCInspector -

    These are two pretty good commercial tools with free demos to try and see what they would recover if you bought them:
    GetDataBack -
    DataRecoveryWizard -

    And remember: taking backups on a regular basis and on an external media is not a bad idea as well. There exists a lot of software that automates this task for you, independantly of the operating system you're using (Acronis or Norton produtcs, but lots of freeware alternatives as well).
