Ouch. But surely a better Disk Utility Tool would help reduce that.
It's unlikely that the files are gone; especially if the computer was
working last night. GParted seems to be a basic Disk Utility program,
not a Disk Repair program. Here is a list of some that might help:

As above; it's more like that the catalog files and the 'structure'
that points to all the 1 and 0's has been mangled but the actual files
are still in their location and with a good Repair program can be
retrieved - saving you well over a weeks worth of time.
