Technically, it would be possible to rebuild the partition tables. This would require low-level editing the partition table and logical entries on the disk itself. Screwing this up can leave the disk in a worse position than when you started.

For NTFS, there are tools out there that can scan the disk to locate the MFT and other file structures. This allows them to then retreive data from the disk. I believe there are similar tools for FAT32 as well.

They cost money, and I can't make any recommendations, having never used any of them!
