salvage-ntfs is suite of recovery tools.
Look also at ntfs-3g or its predecessor ntfs-progs
scrounge-ntfs is another data recovery tool.
dd-rhelp is a disk rescue tool
pcopy will copy the raw disk image so that you can use it to rescue
what you can.

You could launch the CD with "grml readonly" to minimise further
damage to the disk. I have never used "grml forensic" so I don't know
much about it.

Best Wishes
