I have had some success with ZAR( zero assumption recovery) trial version. The only problem with the trial is that you can only save 4 folders at a time so you have to keep running it over and over. The website says it will only recover digital images but i recovered doc's and other data in some folders. The full version is not cheap at $80 but i may buy it simply because i have had to try recovery on customer drives. Some data was lost due to being overwritten but zar does not write over the drive. I recovered near 70% on one drive where windows was reinstalled over itself and crashed to a constant reboot.

I downloaded easy recovery pro from a recommendation and am 100% pleased with the results, I was able to recover 100% of the data from two different drives, one had a corrupt index/filesystem the other had all data erased.

The fill versions are pricey, but can you put a dollar amount on lost data?

No matter what data recovery software you choose, they will all be around the same price.

Good luck

GetDataBack by Runtime software worked like a charm for me. Easyish to use and it really saved my bacon.
