Disk recovery tools
When a harddrive crashes in our shop, the first thing we do is to try to boot it in safe mode. If that doesn't work, then we try checkdisk. We can only afford to spend a certain amount of time to fix the disk. Instead if using recovery software, we will take the disk and make it a slave on another pc. This works really well. Also, for laptop harddrives, we have a tool to connect it to another pc. The connection for the laptop can be taken off which exposes the pins. Our tool fits to the pins and also has a power outlet that can be connected. Then I boot up the host and copy all files needed for the owner. It only cost about $7 and can be used over and over again.
