My LaCie rugged hard drive was recently fried by a friend of mine, and I am looking for a new hard drive. Before I buy a new one, however, I was wondering if there is anything I can do to recover the data on the hard drive? My vacation videos from Spain and Port. are in there. Also, which brands are the best to buy? I've read that G-Technology, OWC, and LaCie are good brands. With my bad luck with LaCie products lately (fried Rugged, and a power brick failure with my old D2 Quadra), I am kind of leery about buying from LaCie again.
