Hard drive recovery

Can anyone recommend a software package that will recover all data on a hard
disc that I am experiencing problems with. I pointed *My Documents* to a
drive that was in a caddy and it has not been accessible after booting up
this morning so I took it out of the caddy and replaced it and now Windows
XP sp2 is saying the drive is not formatted, do you want to format it now?
If I format the drive can the data still be recovered?

I have no problems in purchasing software if it is necessary or should I
attempt something else first that may me able to recover the data and/or fix
the drive problem?

Thanks,

Ted

"Restorer 2000" will do the job, but data will need to be recovered to
another drive.

Perhaps, but it may be more difficult.

Have used GetDataBack from http://www.runtime.org/ when 3 partitions
vanished. You can browse the disk (in demo mode) , see what you can
recover and purchase a license online to recover the data (without
quitting the app).

>attempt something else first that may me able to recover the data and/or fix


Once you have recovered the data, surely the fix drive problem is simply
format it. That's worked in the past.

Software can work, but if the drive is making sounds or anything of
that nature, get it to a data recovery specialist like ESS Data
Recovery (www.essdatarecovery.com) ASAP...they can give you a low cost
evaluation, and the less you try to fix it, the less it will cost. If
it's a logical problem you can get a flat rate of $375.
Their number's 1-800-237-4200.
