Default Re: O/T computer help desk thread

i got one... does anyone know of any free or cheap software for data recovery? i'm not talking "i accidently deleted something and want it back" i need "the disk has bad sectors and is giving me errors on folders saying the data is corrupted and unreadable and it won't even let me delete the (now) empty folder"....
long story short, i bought a Western Digital Tb external in Dubai and had about 460Gb of data on it, including some irreplacable mp3's, images, videos, and personal creations, and after 4 months of service, it's dying on me in a horrible way. pretty much anything i've done on a computer in the last 3 or more years, is disappearing from my life for good... :(

but kindly tell me if it's on fire!
