    Faild Hard disk revovery

    I've got a hard disk which sounds suspiciously like the read/write heads have failed.

    Does anyone know of or can recomend a company that might be able to recover the data?

    Obviously my instructions that I can't back it up and that you can have it for only storing obsolete data on were not listened to, thus making me the bad guy.

    Data Recovery, Computer Forensics & E-Disclosure - Kroll Ontrack UK would be my choice. Won't be cheap though.

    This local independent have been recommended to me on several occasions and their pricing is pretty reasonable as data recovery goes.
