Recuva searched it's heart out in multiple folders on both drives multiple times with practically zero use of it besides recuva, and it found nothing, not even a snippet. Hence why I think the files are still there.

If you haven't yet used Recuva, then please keep it that way as even installing pose a risk to your files being overwritten. I'd first try using a livecd as that way no data is written to your hard disk. Below are a couple of tutorials for the same.
One using ubuntu live cd and other BoorMed live cd (via PhotoRec).
