  2. Hello,

    Well I would suggest bringing that hard drive to a professional data recovery service. Sure it will be expensive depending on how much data you have/need to recover, however at least this way you will be guaranteed your data back.

    As a side note - it would be a good idea to start having multiple back ups for your important data. Having all of your main data on a non backed up hard drive is screaming for problems.

    You should have at least 2 types of back up - say something like a USB based HDD, and /or something like a DVD disc, or blu ray disc.

    And with backups - always do a test on them after a back up to make sure they are backing up properly.
