I've not paid, but I have had a major hard drive failure. When I looked into it I found that I probably wouldn't have any change from several hundred quid.
I ended up trying several software recovery programs, none of which worked until I found one which just about recovered everything off a drive that wasn't recognised by the computer at all. It was a life saver.
The program's on my other PC (I'm in bed at the moment) & I can't recall it's name, I'll try to remember tomorrow & let you know what it's called.
In the meantime Google 'hard drive recovery software', you should find lots of programmes, man of which you can download a trial version, it will have a go & either tell you how many files it can recover or recover a small number of files & then ask you to pay for the software to recover the rest.
It won't cost you anything to try & you might be able to recover most of the stuff yourself.
Be prepared to set aside a few hours though depending on the size of the drive.
