    You can also try Z.A.R. (Zero Assumption Recovery). Depending on the size of the drive the scan will take some time (but not 8 days unless it is really large). Also the free version scan will (should) show that data is recoverable but you will have to purchase the program to actually recover the data.

    What type of mechanical error does the drive have? There are only two that I can think of and they both require professional recovery. If it's clicking, that means the head is stuck. If it's spinning down, it's the board and unless it's an ATA drive can't be user replaced.

  5. The free version of Z.A.R recovers photos and videos.
