recover files after XP reboot?

Windows XP rebooted, and chkdsk
set many of my files to zero bytes. How do I get what was originally in those files back?

And yes, I do have backups for some of them, but they are a couple of months old (mostly e-mail) and I would appreciate a solution for finding the files. I know that the data is there because I used Disk Investigator
to search for key text. Unfortunately, the program has no way of recovering files except cluster by cluster, an extremely time consuming process.
