Windows 7: How to retrieve deleted folder names?

How to retrieve deleted folder names?

I overwrote a drive recently and overwrote parts of it with some new files. I don't need any of the old files back, but I would like to recreate (on another drive) the folder structure of a bunch of directories that were on it. Is there any drive scanning/recovery software that can let me print out a list of the deleted folder names it finds? Thanks.

I am not sure if there is one that will only restore the folders.

GetDataBack - it is paid.
Recuva
MiniTool Power Data Recovery Personal 7 (100% Discount) - free offer for another ~2 days
Lazesoft Data Recovery CD - Free for Home User perhaps

That's the thing -- I don't need to recover the whole folders, just a list of the names that were there.

If you can recreate the folders manually, GetDataBack is supposed to show you a list of files/folders in free version as far as I know. It is not ideal but still a solution.

Probably it doesn't and my question is a long shot - but I recently toasted a drive, and it had many folders and files which I have little memory of. I also never used one of those nice apps that makes a list. Any help appreciated. Much obliged. Tt
