Might be worth a look and a test drive.
As we have discovered, most recovery software looks and acts similar but some work and others don't.

Downloaded the test-disk version to run on a benched hard drive. Will report back later.

I noticed in the comment area that this is cmd line application. I use Recovery3 to recover data now and it is a gui operation. Have to see how intuitive the cmd line ops are.
