Disaster!

So I have a 120 GB drive that contains pretty much all of my files from about 1997 onwards. This drive has been mounted in an external USB enclosure. When I plugged it into SAPPHIRE tonight, the OS asked me if I wished to mount the disk as a basic disc. Unfortunately, it didn't mention that the disk was, at the time, dynamic, and converting it to basic would destroy the partition table. I answered yes, and my heart stopped when the disc came up as over 100 GB of unallocated data. The transaction happened fast enough that I'm sure the data on the disc is still intact -- its just the partition tables that were wiped. Does anybody have a good idea of how to reconstruct the partition tables on this drive?
