Just an update guys.
I worked, sweated and prayed my way through 3, yes THREE different recovery programs and finally got my files back!!!!!
I got all my mp3s back minus about 500 that were corrupted.
The good thing though is that the corrupted ones are still tagged with artists name and song title which means I can add them to my collection at another time.
At least I know which ones I don't have anymore.
I also bought another huge hard drive yesterday and will be backing up all of my music collection from my 2 other drives so this never, EVER happens again.
This is just a thanks to those of you who took a few minutes to try and help me out.
I really appreciate
In case anyone ever needs a great program for data recovery I used "GetDataBack" by http://www.runtime.org.
It's truly the best one there is.
