There is an entire family of this type of software but.

It's expensive and not to be used by normal End Users and it will trash any installed things on an existing HDD.

It is called Forensic Recovery Software


and should only be used by a Data Recovery professional as they will not do things which make it harder to recover Data that the normal End User would do.

The easy solution here would be to Import your Outlook PST File from your Backup and be up and running again. If you go down the Forensic Recovery Path you'll need lots of new hardware at the very least 2 Actively Cooled External HDD Cases and 2 new HDD and you'll need to clone the existing HDD to a new one fit that to your computer and remove the old one, fit it to an External USB Caddy and run it from there to recover any Data that is recoverable to the other HDD in the other External HDD Caddy.

A basic Scan using this software can take several weeks to run so you'll need to have another computer to do it so you can continue working.
