Data Recovery starter?
Could someone point me in the right direction of some popular freeware data recovery tools, and/or sites? Its something I've been wanting to get into, but haven't had a need to until now. I just got a few hard drives to mess around with, thought it would be cool to see whats on them before i use them for myself. Thanks

Give this site a try :
So there is a good chance that you will find what you need.
is the world's largest Open Source software development website, with the largest repository of Open Source code and applications available on the Internet.
Hope that helps you.

There are a few tutorials on AO that deal with data recovery and forensics... should be all the information and links you need.

also one of my friends told me about a program called disk investigator that was used for data recovery but i am not sure how well it works cause i never used it (i believe that it brings the stuff back in hex or binary, but i can not recall as i was just informed about it but never used it.)

Disk investigator is a nice tool, but it's a bit basic. It's only for recovering deleted files, not for recovering fscked partitions.
