I'm trying to recover data on a friends old & corrupt external hard drive and I originally tried EaseUS but was smited after I was prompted to enter a license key once it was finished. I just couldn't see paying $60+ for it.
I imagine there must be some free software available out there that does the same thing. Does anyone have any suggestions where I could locate and download such an application?

Piriform have some free software but the partition has to be intact. I use Power Data Recovery which you do have to pay for but it has never let me down.
if you dont mid a command line interface give testdisk a spin. Its totally free.
