Thanks for the info Mike however recovery software was attempted but the unit itself won't work (spin or whatever it does when it isn't broken).
It needs to be taken apart and each "layer" of the drive needs to be worked on in an attempt at retrieval (or so I was told). It is literally making clicking noises as in something internally isn't moving as it should.
That price is FOR SURE a much better deal though! I'm still going to check out the link.
