I'm adding my tuppence worth, as I used R-Studio on a relative's battered drive, some time ago.
R-Studio can be very effective, but will only recover what it sees, (obviously) and, as Louis says, it cannot
help with the repair of files which have been corrupted and / or thoroughly overwritten.
I recall that it will put up filenames, even if they will not open, so you would at least have a clue as to the
files which you have lost. Surprisingly the freeware Recuva has sometimes been known to do a better job,
where a commercial program has not produced the required results.
Could be that Xxclone has just done too good a job in 'erasing'.
