    Ok, so a drive went bad, you formatted it, reinstalled the OS, then loaded a corrupt back up onto the disk?

    I dont doubt it is possible, but ti would damn expensive, and I can almost guarantee that it would not be more then a 70 or 80 percent recovery (and thats being generous)
    Everyone is going to die, I am just as good of a reason as any.

    It's possible. How bad do you need the data?
    But 1st things 1st...REMOVE THE DRIVE(S) to ensure nothing else is writing to them!!!

    Yeah, recovering data that was deleted/corrupted/overwritten is not something for the average IT Guru. IIRC, this requires microscopic analysis of the platters...or have things changed?

    Hi, after that no data has been added, so then is a posssibility to recover, i guess. The lost data is from the accounting department, so in taxes time is really needed, thanks for the answers, is good to here there is a chance to recover.

    I have a buddy who works in magnetic data recovery for the private sector. I think the software, tools and techniques you need, is either way out of your price range or only made discretely for the Gov. and the like.
