[PLUG] Rescuing data from a likely dead HD

OK, ignore the last question- I solved that myself (will explain offline if anyone's interested). This new one may be more difficult- or, at least, more expensive.

A home support customer of mine has had his notebook HD fry on him. He has a backup, but it's old, so he'd like to restore data from the dead drive. I've tried the deep freeze trick- all I get from that is a quiet sound that's as if the drive is *trying* to spin up... but not able to do so completely.

Is there anything short of sending this drive out to a data recovery place, w/the associated costs?
