    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    How was the partition set up ~ Disk utility, BootCamp etc?

    Does it appear in Disk utility?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Forgive me if I am misunderstanding something. Are you saying that the partition with your data was formatted using the Windows 7 disc? If so, I am pretty sure it overwrote the data when it formatted the partition to NTFS.

    If that is what happened a Windows data recovery might be more helpful in data recovery if anything can. I'll have to leave that for others to answer. I certainly would not do anything else to the drive until you get some answers. Anything which writes to that drive will reduce the chance of recovering your data.

    Depending upon how much data is there the overwrite may not have taken very long. The process of setting up a partition using the Windows 7 disc overwrites anything that is on the area where the partition is being created.

    Since the partition appears in Disk Utility try the following:
    1. Launch Disk Utility
    2. Select the partition that used to have your data
    3. In the bottom left corner of Disk Utility it will show you the disk format. If it says Windows NT file system then the files were overwritten. Mac-based data would not be stored on an NT formatted disk without the addition of a third party utility.

    Data Rescue 3 worked well for me. You can search for it. It is extensive, however.
