You need a filesystem recovery, ZAR. Try a trial version as described here - http://www.z-a-recovery.com/unformat-tutorial.htm - to see if you can locate the Thunderbird database (see http://www.z-a-recovery.com/thunderbird-email-database.htm). However, I would not expect much from these tests. Once you have installed new Windows 7, the damage is massive.
