No!!! Just buy a second hard drive.....you need it for backup anyway. save the recovered files to that drive for permanent storage!!! 2 hd's is a mandatory requirement for a good system...in my humble opinion! Hiring "profesionals" is a huge waste of money since the softeware you can access and use easily is the same stuff they use!!!!!!!
I pulled a Homer Simpson and formated the wrong drive this year. I put in a slave hd and then used Get Data Back. Whammmmooooo!! I lost nothing!! Definition of a "Professional" a guy form out of town with a three piece suit and a briefcase! LOL...you are the professional dude, be dependent on yourself first!!!! And come to forums like this and learn new stuff!!!
