I'm writing to get your opinion on where I should send a hard drive in need of data recovery. There are many sites that offer this service. Some charge ridiculous prices ($800 to $2200). Is there any place in either Canada or the USA that does a good job for a reasonable price?

Have you tried any utilities like PC Inspector?

i tried the 'getdataback' software. The problem is that the drive is not detected properly in the bios. The software also did not recognize it. The bios just shows a drive of size 0.

As far as my experience goes there isnt much software alone can do if the drive is not recognised by the bios. There may be a problem with a crashed head that impacted a plater. File recovery professionals can remove the platters and place them into another hard drive to try and recover the lost files. This has to be done in a clean room. If any dust gets on the platters the platters can be permanantly dammaged.
