Data overwritten are data lost.
Still you can try to find the old pst file by scanning the disk.
http://www.unformat-unerase.com/Unforma ... index.html -> Data Recovery Using R-Studio -> Advanced Data Recovery -> Disk Scan.
Most likely R-Studio will find the previous Windows XP partition and here it may find the pst file. You may also find the file among extra found files.
Frankly, I don't believe there are serious chances to recover the old pst file. Still, it's worth trying, You may install R-Studio Demo for free and do the scan. In this mode R-Studio does all data recovery tasks except actual file recovery. If you find the file and preview it successfully, you may later buy R-Studio and recover the file.

I recommend you save the scan info in order not to re-scan the disk once again.
