She's a photography student so this is a bit of an issue.
I'm looking for a good app that can restore .nef extention files (they're apparently RAW files) - I've managed to get back most of her JPEGs with some app I found, but it hasn't picked up the all important nef's.
I've got another app running at the moment, but I reckon it's looking like it's going to time out on me - so the successful suggestion on an undelete/restore app that gets her files back wins several beers when I catch up with you at pubcon (or another webmaster event :) ).
However I am not certain whether it's appropriate for undeleting files or not.
I had a website I was working on locally (over 200 hours put into it), totally brain-cramped and forgot to back it up before a reformat. It was a "for fun" site, which is why I didn't really think about it. But that episode sure sprouted a lot of new procedures I now have in place.
In the end, I gave up and reverted to backups losing about 8 hours of work.
It sounds to me that you did well to recover the files you did. As Brett said, the rest are probably long gone.
