What low-cost or free utilities are out there to help me recover data?

by on December 8, 2008

Q: I have a Windows XP computer with a D: harddrive that I was using just for data. Recently it just stopped reading data from it. When I tried to access it, the computer asked if I wanted to format the drive, to which I answered “no”. I’m not quite THAT dumb! There are just a few files on the drive that wern’t backed-up that I would like get back. Do you have any suggestions for some low-cost (or better yet, FREE) utilities that can help me achieve this?
