Data Recovery from corrupted hard drive

Hello,
Apparently my Dell computer contracted a nasty virus that has corrupted my hard drive (WD16000BEVE) and caused a "read disk" error. The computer will no longer turn on. I've taken the drive out and to a computer store in an attempt to retrieve vital financial files, only to be told that it is not possible WITHOUT sending it to an expensive data recovery company. Can anyone provide any potentially less expensive ways that I can recover the data?

bobhouras02 is correct. A recovery tool could make the issue worse than it already is. If losing data is accepptable, then you could give it a try; otherwise a reputable data recovery service would be best. If those financial files are vital, were they backed up on a regular basis?

Ask people in your city if you can't ship the drive.

Windows data Recovery Tool is perfect data recovery software for restoring FAT and NTFS partition or data from corrupted, crashed and formatted hard disk drive. http://www.dataretrival.n.nu

Have you tested it yourself or know of someone who successfully recovered vital files from a hard disk having a very similar issue? No free program is as good as expensive tools used by data recovery services; the non-free version of the best ones always provides extra features. Before using such a program, one has to ensure it won't make modifications that could cause more damage.
