If your data is so important that you can't lose it, then don't run all sorts of utilities in an attempt to recover it; send the drive to a data recovery service. If you don't mind taking some risks, then there are several free recovery utilities that other members have used to recover data. I can't propose any because the ones that I tested under similar circumstances caused additional damage and ultimately only a few files could be recovered. I didn't care as I always keep at least 2 backups of all important files.

Hi,

Don't worry you can restore files from corrupted hard drive by using good hard drive recovery software. If you wish to use third party tool to recover, I will suggest you to use hard drive recovery tool. Here you can download demo version to make a free trial.

use stellar phoenix data recovery, just used it right now suggested by someone else here on tom's to recover 7 GB of photos from a drive that was repartitioned, reformatted, and reinstalled new OS on.

dunno if it would work as well as it will on a corrupt drive, but it has that option tho. so u might give it a try. good luck!
