Data Recovery - Corrupt HDD

  merlin 13:30 09 Feb 2004

Hi All,
I'm looking for a Data Recovery Tool ( shareware/free)to recover data from my corrupt HDD - I managed to back up about 70% of it before it finally gave up the ghost.
Any suggestions much appreciated

Sorry, sent before completed. The first of those has some freeware, I think, but the rest are chargeable.

Also look at

or type <data recovery tools> into your favourite serach engine.

Thanks Xania,will give them a try - some of the trials I have seen will only let you "see" the recoverable data and not actually recover it unless you purchase the software

Fred Langa's Newsletter has a bit on File Recovery and Undelete etc.I have tried PC Inspector,it worked great on a SmartMedia camera card,but set it off thru a 120Gb hdd with its Partitions deleted(I could still see the data)and it crashed the puter. :-(

I had a hunt thru the offerings from google click here but still haven't found either a freebie that works,or a trial that could get these files(if I bought it)I gave up,and accepted the loss of 42Gb's of video/data/apps,but now religously backup everything to a DVD-RW in 4Gb chunks,or to CD-RW for the smaller stuff.
