    I have a damaged hard drive. I am hoping that the information from
    "My Documents" can be retrieved. How should I go about finding and
    hiring a professional computer serviceman that can do this? I have
    already wasted time and money with a repairman that thought he could
    do it, but then said he couldn't because he couldn't find a hard drive
    perfect match to transfer the info to.

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Depending on how badly damaged the hard drive is, it can sometimes be
    attached as a slave to a master drive allowing important files to be
    transferred. If this is not possible, you will pay a huge sum of money to
    have the data professionally extracted. And that's with no guarantee that
    your key files will survive the process.
    Check your local yellow pages or ask around in the area. Chances are that
    a simple routine will do the trick.
    If you want professional data recovery, Google it and get some idea of
    what you are dealing with.

    Try data recovery software before you spend big money for the service.
