Hi,

You know the answer to this one already...this kind of soft sells for at least a few thousands of $s.

One site I can recomend is GRC.com, where you may find some good tools and guidelines.

Unless you're using NTFS as a file system I can't recommend their Spinrite soft highly enough, it's simply outstanding.

There are a number of companies out there able to retrieve data from crashed disks and such but this is nothing I'd recommend at a private level, expensivissimo...

The best advise I can give you for the future is doing an incremental backup of your valuable data to CDR-W or DVD-RW on a daily basis and grow a sense of healthy paranoia when it comes to anything named PC or M$.

Good luck,

Either way, that drive smoked your behind and running esoteric OSes doesn't really help one bit now, does it???

Not that I'm a big fan of $, macro$s but at least I've the know-how to retrieve lost bitsies...

C'est la vie mon ami...
