  2. I've used a freeware prog called Undelete Plus to do this very job
    with much success - and the Ultimate Book Disc contains a number of
    such tools, including one that can recover partitions that have been
    re-formatted. I would advise using something like Acronis or Paragon
    to copy the discs first if the data is irreplaceable.

    I have used a number of recovery tools in the past (I -literally! - have
    every mainstream recovery tool). The best IMHO is the relatively unknown
    "File Scavenger."

    I also like the Disk Internals programs, particularly for RAID recovery.
    "Recover My files" is also pretty good.

    Remember not to write to the disks you are trying to recover (easier said
    than done if they are NTFS). The best approach (especially if the disk is
    not physically damaged) is to make a sector-by-sector image and work with
    that.

    I also have used "Recover My files" and I bought some
    software from Ontrack which worked well.

    A lot depends on what is wrong with the disks and
    whatever it takes a very long time.

    Onces I used stellar phoenix data recovery software which is quit good
    as far as disk recovery is concern some of the very good feature of
    this software is image capturing which is valuable when your hdd have
    lots of bad sectors. This software is also available in trial version
    and the price of this software is only $99. This may helps you.
    you can go here for download
