What do you do with a dead hard disk?

One of the most horrific things that can happen in the world of computing is to sit down at your computer only to find that nothing turns on and your hard disk is DEAD. You realize that you never back up and spasms of fright course through your body as you think of how (or if) you are going to get your data back.
The Washington Post put together a short list of useful hard disk recovery tools and writes The simple truth is that hard drives are mechanical — and that makes failure more a matter of when, not if. And because so many people don’t back up their data (despite our continued nagging), the loss can be catastrophic.
In many cases, though, that data doesn’t have to be lost forever — but it will cost you both time and money to recover some, if not all, of what you lost.
