The best tool I've used for this is getdataback. It isn't free, but you can scan the HD with the trial or demo version, and if it sees your files and folders, you can register it so you can then copy those files to another location. Make sure you don't write anything to the affected HD before having recovered the files, as you might otherwise overwrite them. You will probably need the ntfs version, even though at the moment your partition is listed as a FAT partition.

Recuva is as powerful as GetDataBack but free: www.recuva.com
Give it a try.
