Hard Drive Problems - Need help please

I need some help with one of my harddrives. Something went wrong with it and about 10000 files just vanished and the space available increased by about 400 gig (no its no porn) its music files, sound effects and music videos. What is bizare about it, is there are two partitions on the drive, the good partition is as it was before and hasnt changed what so ever, but the wonky part still had loads of files visable as it was before it was just that 10000 files just vanished from it. Its weird, it like selected random files and just make them disappear.

Anyway I purchased a license for diskdigger that did a fabulous job of recovering about 80% of the music files but sadly only about 5% of the music videos. As disk digger doesnt read all the file types I couldnt recover the mkv music video files and im gutted.

Of all the files that I recovered that ive listened to or watched since it happened theres only been about 10 or so that had screwed up so im convinced the rest of the missing files are still there I just cant get at them.

Im guessing something went wrong with like the table of contents on the disk, or something like that? Does anyone know from what Ive said the said/described what I can do to try and fix the error. I cant see it being that bad of an error as I recovered so much already.

Can anyone help me?

Thanx in advance

thanx for those sites. I had already tried recuva which didnt work, however from the first link I found a program that seems to be doing something. Its been going for about 12 hours and has found 1000's of files so thank you for that :)
