Default HDD recovery

Hey guys/gals,
Recently I decided to mess around with Linux, so I installed Fedora 11 on a spare hard drive I had laying around. Everything went well and I soon chose to jump back on my XP drive for a quick game or two. Well I plugged it in and it seems my 640GB storage drive wiped itself clean. I ran easy file undelete and it found everything that was missing. However, in order to get everything back I need to pay $50. I am running O&O disk recovery now and the first 2 attempts would leave my computer frozen after 50%... So I am hoping someone here has some good advice because this is frustrating. I would like my data back as cheaply as possibly and so far I think easy file undelete is the most promising. Thanks in advance everyone.
