Yay...more bad news...I downloaded EaseUS Data Recover Wizard free edition and it doesn't even see the drive to recover information from it....i fear i'm going to have similar results with the other two but i'll give them a shot tomorrow...

I think it is time for you to try Test Disk for Data Recovery.
TestDisk - CGSecurity

Please go through the online documentation diligently.

First try PhotoRec, which is absolutely safe since it does not write anything to the disk being recovered.

If not successful, then try Test Disk.

Apart from the online documentation these two hands-on trial should help you get a grip on these.

Guide to using PhotoRec recovery software.

The other thing I always recommend first is to check accessibility with a Live Linux CD.

Good Luck.
