Hard Drive Data Retrieval Tool

Can anyone recommend a free one to download? I've tried a few from google results but they seem to be evaluation copies.

Basically, sister's hard drive won't boot and cannot be accessed when being used as a slave in my machine. It sees the drive but says "the drive has not been formatted. Would you like to format it now"

Nooooo......not without trying to retrieve the data on there. So? Suggestions welcome please

Are you being serious?

What's the purpose of doing that?

No luck. Put the drive back in as a slave and again it was recognised in windows but wouldn't let me access it. Just hangs for about 30 secs and says the drive is not formatted, would you like to format it now.

I took to gently tapping it with a hammer (as suggested on another board) and now the drive isnt even recognised on boot - whoops. I guess things are a little more brittle when they're frozen.

The HD retrieval tool I downloaded had no problem accessing the drive and I was able to see what was on it but, of course, I needed to buy the full copy in order to retrieve anything.

I will wait for it to defrost before trying again

So I guess I'm back to my original question - can anyone recommend a free tool to download?

If you put 'Hiren’s BootCD 8.6' through google, I suspect you might find somewhere to download it from.

I have found Ontrack Easy Recovery Pro 6.10 to be a particularly good piece of software.

Every good repair guy knows the best way to repair things are to give them a "tap" first
