I suggest a professional file recovery program from one of these vendors:

http://www.file-recovery.net/order.htm this is the cheapest for the personal edition

http://www.recovermyfiles.com/data-recovery-software-purchas­e.php

http://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm

Check them out - and buy one that has the features you need. Be advised that downloading any program may destroy the very files you are attempting to recover. The best solution is to move the hard drive to another computer and do the recovery from that operating system.

Hi loudan,

Have you tried checking the drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tool. It may give you some good information on what is going on with your drive. It really may be failing. If results from scans are not so good and you need the information on the drive, try using Linux Live CD. Sometimes it grants enough access to copy the data. Unfortunately things like that may happen. Do some backups of your important files to avoid such situations.

Hope this helps
