It gets pretty tough to go though the files that are recovery when they are randomly named and the software I tried recovers everything that was ever on the hard drive(thousands and thousands of files). I downloaded trinity rescue kit as a livecd and ran photorec, but that randomly renames the files. I also tried some windows based programs like easeus Data Recovery, which also renames the files, and recuva, but that doesn't restore any files that I need.

For protected files though deleted, the file name is preserved, and programs like Linux Live CD (GParted Magic, for example) or EASEUS can read the names. They don't change the names. So basically you're finding deleted files which were no longer protected -- meaning, the Recycle Bin was emptied, assuming you're on pre Win7 of Windows. (I don't know what Win7 does, since I won't upgrade past XP Pro.)

You query is very fine. Earlier we lost our all partitions and applied several commercial tools but the issues were same. Finally reached in hddguru forum where smone recommended "systools hard drive data recovery" tool. By installing and executing the same tool, we were able to get back whole data with original file name. I guess, once you should also go for this and check the output delivered by this tool.

However, fortunately, from your description, your drive is not mechanically damaged.
Therefore, to get back your data, you are supposed to opt for a proper data recovery tools out there. In fact, there are plenty of data recovery tools online. But, not all of them could restore your data completely. You should pay attention to this point.
If you have no ideas, I would recommend you to try some data recovery freeware, such as Recuva, iCare Data Recovery Free andTestDisk, etc.
Edit: If you don’t want to experience similar problem, remember to back up all your wanted data all the time.
