It wasn't cheap
It's managing to salvage most/all of the files on the trashed hard drive
Very very very slowly
This is going to take quite a while and in some cases I'm going to have to grab individual files one by one. Yup, I'm definitely feeling like an idiot right about now. I'm psyched that I may be end up not losing all the data I had, but it's going to take some doing to pull it off. Grrr... The drive is pretty much completely dead though. I was only just able to get windows to boot up with it and so far, only this program has been able to find the files I want to salvage.
