Recover Harddrive Information

By Patrick Horn ·
The owner of the company I work for had his harddrive crash on his laptop. Of course he has some critical files that he needs recovering. Can anyone recommend any programs that I might use to recover this info?? Thanks, Pat

Depending on the problem there are quite a few goods apps for data recovery. However, the drive must be operational. If it is physically damaged or uable to spin-up then the only hope is a company that specializes in recovery from damaged disks (not cheap).

My favorite date recovery tool is Easy Recovery Pro but there are many other apps out there also. A pretty good freeware app is Active@ Partition Recovery. Here's a couple of links:

You can browse through the article here:

If the data on the drive is valuable or irreplaceable,you should send the drive to a recovery service.
The more you attempt to do, the harder (and more costly) it will be to have the data recovered.

You have enough links here for what you need, but I thought I
would add the Winternals product Disk Commander. It is part of
the Winternals Admin Pak.

Good Luck,
