    There is no chance of recovery. Even under the best conditions with physical access to the drives and immediately un-mounting the drive after deleting, it would still be extremely difficult at best.

    Just curious why the data was not important enough to backup but urgent to recover?

    The hoster deleted it and backups not knowing that is was still necessary
    This happened accidentally.
    Now it is extremely important to restore it

    You mean the same provider that turned off your firewall also deleted your backups? I think its time to search for a bit more professional service.

    Like Jayh38 said, you cannot restore the files. At best your host could try to do something at a very low level with some kind of O/S restore tools but I would be willing to bet good money that its impossible to do anything at this point.

    Always learn how to do backup. At this point of time, there is no turning back of your data. They are lost for good :)
