Angry how to recover ext 4 partition and data

Hello All

Well i have an 20GB HDD (/dev/sdb) formated with ext4 and has very important files on it .All of sudden something went wrong and the 20GB partition has been lost . Now how do i have to recover that partition and primarily recover those files .
Gparted shows no partition on it but unpartitioned space .
Please help those files were very important.

Thanks In Advance to All

Photorec is a tool that can be used for recovery but it will all depend what has happened. Just deleted files might be recovered but if you have formatted the partition or overwritten with abrupt data then it might just be difficult. Gparted is not a recovery tool but is used to alter the partitions and format.
