Can we assume that you dont have a backup?
How important are the missing files? (games, documents,etc).
You have several problems.
1-a disk problem
I dont think (short of a commercial recovery business.) you are going to be able to recover them.
If you still wish to try stop using that HD NOW.
Do you have another computer?
