retrieve erased diskette content

Years ago I accidentally had an A500 diskette erased.
It contained compositions I had made with Soundtracker Sad
I still have it.
Is there a way to retrieve its contents?
Thank you!

Try with a tool called ADF-Workshop

Analyze the disk with it and if you are lucky you could see the deleted files

Then you can extract those

You can also try FixDisk or DiskSalv, first make a test on a copy of the floppy.

In general, don't use software that needs to write on disk. It may just make more damage.
You can safely use DiskSalv in Salvage and Undelete modes if you use something like RAM: as destination for the operation.

I see!
Since I don't have the hardware necessary, could you refer me to someone who could do this for me (at a price, if needed)?
