Ouch, that's like nightmare come true. Not that it hasn't already become true for me...

Easy Recovery works pretty well. But if you want to be able to recover more than 1 file you'll have to buy it. Quite a hefty price tag if you consider that you'll probably use it only once.

There are also free data recovery programs.
download.com seearch for "recovery"
tucows.com search for "recovery"

You always need to recover the files to a destination other than the crashed drive (partition?).

i found that getdataback was infact the best program, and my entire catalogue of mp3s has been restored.

why the hell we are paying some geezer $5.000.000.000 dolalrs to recover our hard drive, taking over a month to do it is beyond me

i vote send the hard drive to me!!!!!

You spent $5? No wonder it's taking so long, they probably had to pay postage somewhere down the line.
