Hello,
What do you guys think about DIY data recovery? Do you think it is worth enough to trying recover data from your damaged hard drive using a free tools? As we all know hard drives are very sensitive and needs care when handling. Any opinion?

Recuva is free and it does the job just as good if not better than shareware. We at CCM prefer recommending efficient freeware to our users and members. We don't advertise shareware on the forum which you may be tempting to do.

Honestly, I didn't tempt to advertise my blog post. I was trying to show you the insight in detail. BTW, It doesn't matter as it got removed. But i must ask if you read that post?
