Default Anyone know of a good data recovery place?

Last night the hard drive in the computer that the rest of my family used randomly decided to die. Does anyone know of a good data recovery place? I am located in Cincinnati, Ohio. Any help or advice at all would be appreciated.

They are all very expensive, so unless you really, really need the content it is not worth it.

At work we have a usb 2.0 ide adapter that we can sometimes use to get data off of bad hard drives. It just depends how bad it is. You could also try using a live linux cd and save the data to a second hard drive.
