If you have another harddisk or somewhere to transfer your data over, you can try easy recovery pro

Buy an external casing, put your crashed harddisk into the external casing, attach it to another computer and try to run the program kei suggested.

If you have the money to spend, you may approach iBas Singapore for data recovery. Not too sure of the charge...onie if your data is really impt.

Erwin and Mirage. Thank you for your input. I tried a shop in Sim Lim and they wanted to charge $1500 for retrieving of datas. Thus, I think I have to learn this lesson of not backing up my data promptly.

1 of the ways to recover data on hdd is to put it inside the freezer
after some time, take it out and quickly connect to ur comp and boot up. if the data is accessuble, quickly copy them out. this method can only be used once or twice before the hdd fails completely

highly unnecessary, just need to plug it into another system which already has a HDD in place, and try to run a recovery software from there.
