Have you ever had a drive you could not get your data recovered from? We have probably all been there once or twice. A co-worker (thanks Jeff T!) passed this tool on to me. This is NOT freeware. If you have looked at any of my other posts you know how frugal (some call me cheap :) ) I usually am but this one could very well be worth it's weight in gold! The registration on this product does do a phone home and will only be able to be installed on 1 system but surely you have a workbench system you can throw it on. Here is the skinny on it:
