In a word ,no. Unless the old HDD can be retrived and read, your out of luck. I assume the old HDD was bad? Was that the reason for the new HDD. Didn't you tell the Tech to transfer the data? If possible.

There is a possibility if your files when updated were being stored online as restore points.but you need to be able to find computer god to get them.or if you have taken files off as it was...try your search engines,or any online backups ...to paired devices...nothing is gone unless its broken,and then it can maybe be repaired so BEWARE...i hope you didnt just throw it out,cause unless you smashed it with a hammer,some nosey problem might appear...
