Okay so normally I back up regularly once a week, but this time I'm pissed. My harddrive failed again on me yesterday after just completing 10 hours worth of work! This is the second time its happened to me in three months and the second time I've lost a load of work I have just finished doing. I'm sick of ringing Adobe to sort out my serial number registrations as I have to reinstall everything to another drive and last time it took apple a week to get a new drive to me. Last time I just took it as the drive being dead but I would really like to know if there is anyway/possibility I can get my data back without spending a too much on a data-recovery company. Is there a way I can do it my self, physically or with particular software? The first time I'd only had the drive 4 months and now this one has only lasted 3 months. Its from a 2.53ghz 15" unibody if anyone is wondering and its a 320gb, 7200rpm Hitachi drive. Sorry for the rant and hope someone has some suggestions!
