Recover data from Unallocated Backup Drive

I must have been lapsing in concentration on Friday. I was restoring an image from a backup drive partition and stupidly pulled the power supply for that drive thinking it was the printer. (I know - don't grin like that!)

The upshot is that the NTFS partition became unallocated. About 350Gb. Any tried and tested solutions or am I resigned to reconstructing the backups as best I can? It's impossible to replicate some of the material on there anyway.

I have tried Recuva which is hopelessy inadequate although it found some picture files and reported that the they had not been overwritten.

Ignore this one - an inadvertent double post.
