That would be GetDataBack http://www.runtime.org/, and it is worth it - it doesn't write over the original disk, which is important if the recovery fails.  If GetDataBack can't recover your data, it's time for the clean room specialists and an expensive job.  Hiren's has pirated software, so it cannot be discussed here.
