    Not quite following you on this but disk cleanup would not delete normal user files on a drive or partition (unless they were already in the Recycle Bin).

    Did you use the built in Windows Disk Clean routine or did you use another program ?

    I use Restorer Ultimate any time I have some one asking me to recover data. you do have to purchase the program. But it is easy to use and very effective I find.
    For Free Applications I'M not sure. But If you really want your data the try Restorer Ultimate.

    Good Luck

    Photorec is a very renown multi platform open source program. It's free and despite its name it does not only recover photos but also files like videos, archives and documents. You could try this one.

    You could also try using Recuva. They have a free version available for download.

    Oh one more piece of advice: If you try to recover the files you mustn't store the recovered files on the drive/ partition you intend to recover. Otherwise you will overwrite the very files you are trying to recover.
