Your partition table or root directory got damaged. If the recovery programs can't repair them you have to write the files to another disk then reformat the hard drive. Same thing happened to me. My 500 GB drive was partitioned, so the not read portion was 3 out of 8 partitions. Mine was caused by using it on a slow computer. I rebooted not realizing that it had not completed reading the disk structure.
