I had a bad hard drive that didn't have a current backup, so I got a local repair ship to recover the data. I had tried to recover the data myself with one of those USB 2.0 to IDE/SATA devices, but Windows could see the drive, but not pull any data from it or see the file structure. It just wanted to reformat the disk.
The shop was able to recover the data, and they used File Scavenger and Disk Recoup made by Quetek here:
Good to note for future failed hard drives.
