I used to use a program called "lost & found" by powerquest. It worked
really well. But:
1. Symantec bought powerquest and discontinued l&f
2. l&f is old and may not work with NTFS? (I was using it on fat32)
3. It's not very user friendly
4. You'll need a floppy disk drive (iirc)

I just searched for it though, and it looks like you can still find it
for sale. ($15 < £450)
