Unfortunatly at this point your data is gone and I would suggest starting the recovery over. The only thing I can think of that you might want to try is taking the hard drive out and using an adapter (IDE/ATA Serial adapter) that allows you to plug the hard drive into a USB port to check and see if anything is still on it. I wouldn't count on being able to get the data at this point if it was already 15% through the recovery.
Please post rather than sending a Private Message. It's good for the community and I might not be able to get back quickly.- Thank you.
