    You realise you're gonna be spending in the hundred to get that data back from a company like that right ? Do you really need it ? Try and get your work to pay for it for you

    http://windowssecrets.com/comp/070322/ for dead hard drive tips.

    SpinRite 6.0 can get a lot of 'dead' drives functioning again (sometimes only enough to retrieve data, but that's better than nothing). http://www.grc.com/default.htm (PS it's not free, $89)
