Windows 7: How do I replace files in HP_Recovery (D:)

How do I replace files in HP_Recovery (D:)

I installed a floppy disk drive today on my HP Pavilion to transfer some Apple floppies with Media4 software. One of the steps involved formating the A: drive. I didn't notice that the D: drive was high lighted and I picked format. Now obviously the HP_Recovery D: drive is blank. Is there a way I
can reload those files to that drive? I am running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1.
