I am in need of a top-notch software data recovery solution for Win-XP (other than Ontrack) Cost is not as relevant as functionality in this case. Any ideas would be awesome.
Thanks in advance

    R-Studio is very good:

    Also to maximize your chances of recovery be sure to avoid software that writes to the damaged disk like spinrite

    And for very good and free check out ddrescue

    Try GetDataBack  Free to try.  If it sees the missing files you pay for full functionality.

    Also look at PCInspector and Recuva

    Both are free.

    I'd try GetDataBack.  If it sees your files then try the free ones.  If they work you save money.
