Undelete or recover from badblocks on disks

I seemed to have lost some critical dump files during a restore. The
directory in which they were backed up in seemed to vaporize. The data was
present as indicated by df -h but the directory was not listed.
fsck on the disk was ineffective
fsck_ffs produced an extensive listing of bad block, a final SALVAGE option,
but on completion, the disk "capacity" from the df -h was significantly

Is there anyway of recovering even 'partial' data from these lost blocks?
The drive has been disconnected so that there would be no 'write'
