Hey SuperComputer Genius'-

My Dell laptop "blue screened"-
The only information on it I care about is 3 years worth of pictures!
I took it to the Geek Squad at Best Buy for data recovery -
They could not recover anything so I bought a new laptop but would still like
to pursue data recovery before I return it to Dell for replacement -

I called Dell & they gave me the name of some "data recovery people".......
I inquired & they charge $1600 - $2400 !!!!

Before I give up & send it back for replacment,
can anyone refer me to a "cheaper recovery option" or is this a lost cause ?

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer ;-)

Hi Tarabulltee...

Does the drive still spin up (or did it when you last used it)? Do you know what the Geek Squad did to try and recover the drive?
