    There is plenty of software available to do what you want, but I could'nt recommend any particular manufacture, as I've never required it. I'd suggest you do a search for "data recovery" or "zip data recovery", you will find plenty, and the choice is yours. A search in AO (data recovery) will also turn up numerous threads on the subject, with posts giving links to software available. The other option is a recovery service. Regardless of method, it will cost you, unless you can find some free software. The question you must ask yourself is how important is your school project, and can you afford it , or recover your data in time. Sisters are a very good reason for ensuring you have backups of important data, and keeping it in a safe place

    /edit: you may be able to obtain trial software, which offers limited functionality, and enables a minimal amount of data to be recovered. You will of course still have to find out if your data is recoverable.
