Recover formatted ext3 partition

I have a folder of about 5GB that suddenly disappeared. When I checked its hard disk, I found out it has bad sector for about 2-3MB on this folder. Maybe it is on the folder's pointer.

The partition is EXT3 , and operating system is Debian.

I tried the fsck command , but it hasn't worked.

What should I do? How can I recover data? Any program or command?

first of all: Create an umage of that partition/drive and then work on that image. –  Bonsi Scott Jan 10 '13 at 18:51
    
@Arash Are the answers to the duplicate not the same as for your question? It doesn't really matter what the cause was, as long as the fix is the same –  Michael Mrozek Jan 11 '13 at 7:31

Maybe testdisk will handle this.
