This MIGHT do it... no guarantees, ever, in recovering data.

There are others.

You MUST be VERY knowledgeable about hard drives to get this to find and save files without directory or partition information. You are looking at a raw read recovery. VERY time consuming. You will need to install this drive into another pc with ample space for the files to be copied to. You may only get one shot at it, depending on the condition of the drive and why it failed.
Good luck!
