I have an external HD that got corrupt (or whatever the proper term is) when I was copying from my old laptop to the HD. The laptop overheated and shut down mid-copy. So when I plug in the external HD it prompts me to format it.

The same thing happened before and a mate of mine recovered the data, but I don't know what he used. I can't use him again to do it :(

So what software is out there that is free or low costs that will get my crap back? I'm happy to pay but not too much as I (hope) it will only be used the once.

I've googled a bit but would rather advice from peeps in the know rather than downloading programs blindly.

I don't see him that often so I just don't wanna rock up and say 'fix my s***, again'.

I might check out this recuva.

I don't care if I have to pay for it, but not too keen on big $'s considering I'll probably only use it once.
