Do you not have QuickBooks backed up on CD or USB?
I doubt you do or you wouldn't be in such a panic but if you do, just restore it from the back up.
I know this doesn't help for now but in the future, always have QBooks backed up on several removable media disks.
I use to back up my QBooks on several disks just in case one gets a glitch and won't allow me to restore from it, as that did happen to me. I usually only backed up once a week but more often would even be better. It is also a good idea to keep at least one of those back up disks in a remote location, as in, take one home with you. I backed up on two to take home, one just so i would always have the base of my data that I only took in occasionally to back up on, and one I took in once a week to back up on. I left all the other back ups at the shop but in a worse case scenario, fire or theft, the ones at home kept me covered. I also made the owner of the business take one home occasionally too, just in case since that data is so invaluable. If all other disks were lost or damaged, even though he didn't bring the disk in for me to continue to update, at least he had one that had the base and several years worth of data so I wouldn't have quite as much to recreate.
I am so sorry if you lost that data, I know what a pain it can be.
Just remember, back up, back up, back up.
