The program he used was Easeus Data Recovery Wizard
and it cost 69.95 to register the program. You can download a trial for free but you won't be able to save the recovered files until you register it. He said it worked like a charm.
"Data Recovery Wizard is complex data recovery software developed for non-destructive data recovery from Hard Disk drives and other storage devices. It may sound complicated at first, but after reading this manual and using Data Recovery Wizard, you'll found that despite the complexity of the software, it's very easy to use. Here's a little bit about the software:
Wizard mode leads data recovery.
Step-by-step guides walk you through recovery session painlessly and easily. Intelligentized partition analysis and file research, needless complicated setting.
Data Recovery Wizard can recover folders and files that were lost because of following causes:
1. Intentional (trashed files) or unintentional deletion
3. Formatting a disk
4. FDISK or any other disk-partitioning tool
5. All other non-physical data loss problems
Data Recovery Wizard can recover files and folders from disks on which the following components have become corrupted (or even if they are completely missing):
1. Partition table (main or extended)
2. Boot record (sometimes called "BIOS Parameter Block" or BPB)
3. File allocation table (both FAT1 and FAT2 on file systems that use FAT12, FAT16 and FAT32)
4. Root folder
5. Master file table
When Data Recovery Wizard recovers your data, you need have the options of saving it to another hard drive, a network drive, a floppy disk or some other type of storage device."
