Default Dat Recovery

Anyone know where I could send/take my drive to get some data recovered? I have a large storage drive that seems to have failed. My PC will not boot into windows with it plugged in though I was able to do a CHKDSK in DOS.

Im looking for a place that would recover the data for a decent price, if theres a free alternative then thats good too. There is alot of information I do not wish to lose on the drive...

Any help would be appreciated.

It was already slaved to begin with, its a storage drive. But yeah, I tried it on my media PC and it gets the same issue, no boot while installed.

IDE

Ever use this program? Would like some feedback prior to spending $90 to test it out...

Anyone know where I could get a CD Image of a boot disk that would allow me to read and write NTFS filesystem in DOS? I can access the folders in the drive through windows repair but it wont allow me to copy anything...

Here you go...

http://www.ntfs.com/products.htm

Appears to be a NTFS reader for DOS. There is a link on that page to the bootable CD image. And it says you can copy things so I think it should work

I saw that but the boot-dsk.iso is empty... just has acouple pdfs and some txt files... no actual boot files.

EDIT: Looking into the Ultimate Boot Disc... this might do it.

I find it really weird that I can access the disc through DOS and even comes up clean and fine through CHKDSK... wonder why windows doesn't like it.

Well Ultimate Boot Disc didn't help at all... Best Buy has data back up service for $89 but they can only backup up to 4GBs... I need 80GB.
