I've used Photorec ( http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec ) in the 
past, both on Linux and XP....  I had to trawl through tens of thousands 
of deleted security camera images :-( It took best part of a weekend but 
eventually came up trumps. I restored the files to a new (usb attached)  
hard drive and not to the original one.

As noted earlier, it'll not recover names of the deleted files though.
