There are thousand of programs.But i suggest you should use Recuva becaus it is fast.Just check this site you will find more than 15 recovery programs and mostly free. Check:http://pcsupport.about.com/od/filerecovery/tp/free-file-recovery-programs.htm

Recuva is free but you can recover limited data so try another tool like Kernel data recovery software

Those things work only if the MFT has not been corrupted/overwritten. With a recovery... only the slightest chance of success.

Thanks for the input all, I did use Recuva, as you point out it is free but you can only recover 100mb . Now here is the twist , by running the free / trial first I could see how much was there 74GB so did pay for the full verion.
Worked a treat pic's as far back as 2009.

Thanks all for your help.
