Re: [vox-tech] Data Recovery

You should always feel free to look into professional services, but, out
of curiosity, what do you mean by "crashed"?  Did you dunk it in water,
hit it with a sledge hammer, put it in fire, etc?  If not, it may still be
recoverable via software by much cheaper techniques.  I think the
professional guys also charge by number of files or size of data they
recover, not by hard drive count.

Again, you should always feel free to look into professional services, but
I thought I'd give you some heads up so you know some of your options in
case you weren't aware already...
