I I'd suggest using this free tool to see if you can recover them that way: http://www.pcinspector.de
BTW - if the files "aren't there", the system will see that space as being free - and will use it whenever it pleases for background operations. Luckily this is not the primary boot drive (presumed from your description) - so overwriting is not as likely. But still, you want to minimize the activity on that disk (and on the system) to maximize the chances of recovering these files.
In other words, don't use the system for anything else until you try the recovery tool.

Once you've recovered everything, you can use many different utilities to re-partition and re-format the hard drive. The easiest is a DOS boot disk with the FDISK and FORMAT commands (available for free at http://www.bootdisk.com/ )
