First of all. DO NOT WRITE ANYTHING to this drive until you get it sorted out.
There is plenty of software available to recover missing files/folders. Some better than others.
The files are still there, but the Directory Sector has 'forgotten' where they are and if you write anything to this drive you could easily write over the files you want to recover. Directory recovery software will interrogate the drive and list all the 'Deleted' files that it finds. It will then ask you to tick all those files you want to recover. Unless you know the name of each missing file it's probably best to select the lot, then go through the painstaking task of deleting all the rubbish again.
Alternatively, you can take the drive to a pro and have the directory re-constructed. But he probably won't do any more than you can do with propitiatory software.
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
