I've got a mate that has asked me for a hand recovering data from a hard drive of his.

I had come across some pretty powerful software years ago, but my current searches just turn up crap on google.

Anyone used anything good that they can recommend?

I used R-Studio to recover data once. It took quite a while for the program to do its thing, as it spends a lot of time checking and rechecking the drive (left it running overnight), but I got almost all the data back.

Note - you ought to run the software on a separate drive to recover the data - otherwise you run the risk of over-writing the existing data, which defeats the purpose.
