Try Easeus Partition Recovery, as I've heard good things about it in the past. Here's the link: http://www.easeus.com/partition-recovery/


MiniTool Partition looks fairly good too, and it's free for up to 1GB of recovered data: http://www.minitool.ca

I can personaly attest to the easeus partition recovery software. My dad purchase easeus data recovery several years ago to rescue a formatted USB flash drive and Introduced me to the software I have since upgraded to the Pro with bootable media. I have had success with all types of flash storage, digital camera internal storage, single Hard drives and 2 raid setups. lastly it's free for up to 2gb of data
