I had a serious hard-drive crash on my home PC Wednesday night, and diagnosed it as such last night. Unfortunately, I had not backup in 6 months and have lost all my digital photos! I've decided I'm willing to pay for data recovery and a coworker recommends Gillware, which would cost about $400. Are there any other recommendations for data recovery after a hard-drive crash? If Ron or Parker read, this, how did HTF recover from its HD crash last year? This is extraordinarly frustrating. I'd been meaning to backup my data, but just hadn't gotten around to it. Adding insult, this drive is only 7 months old and I was using it as my "safe" backup for my 6 year old, primary drive! Infant mortality at its digital worst. I expect Western Digital will replace my hard-drive, which I don't want since I have no confidence any more in their hardware. I'd much rather them pay for my data recovery.
