Now...the question is...do you want to purchase this program or try a couple free ones. Things to consider...GDB has the files assembled and ready to recover and when you close the program, you will have to start over. Many free programs may work or they may not. I haven't had very good success with the free versions...some others have had good success. Ya just never know.
I think the license for GDB is $79.00 and, in my opinion, it's worth every dime.
I guess you have a choice to make, but at least we know where we stand.

Any idea where those might be?
As far as pruchasing, I don't have that kind of money. I would agree with you about it being worth it, but it doesn't do much good if I can't afford it.
I would also be inclined to agree with you about the free ones. I don't mind starting over if it works, but let me ask you this...Is there a chance that by trying these free ones, it will loose any of these files?
Also, why do you think it didn't find the other two drives or partitions?

Try GetDataBack for FAT32 and see if it will pick up the other partitions.

Now let's see if we can find the rest of the data. If you did have them formatted to FAT32, GDB should find them. If there's no FAT system, it'll let you know that, too.

I know you can't afford this, it's just another option.
FYI, wannbe1, I have used getdataback in the past. It does work great. I switched to r-studio, because it does all formats (FAT (FAT12, FAT16, FAT32), NTFS, NTFS5,HFS/HFS+ (Macintosh), Little and Big Endian variants of UFS1/UFS2 (FreeBSD/OpenBSD/NetBSD/Solaris) and Ext2FS/Ext3FS (Linux). The price on their site is $79.99

Looks like an impressive application, Magglass. I'll give it a try the next time I have to do a recovery. Thanks for the heads up.

The first one I had you try is for NTFS file systems only.

Do you know how far back it was?
