I am hearing about Getmydataback and Hiren's which is the best data recovery software out today? A list to choose from would be great.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
