My dad's hard drive stopped working 2 weeks ago.  I couldn't get it to
mount with the System Rescue Live CD and wasn't able to use any utilities
from the Ultimate Boot CD.  He took it to Altex and they couldn't do
anything with it either.  They gave him the name of a data recovery place
in Austin and said it would run between $300-$1400 and since they couldn't
fix it it wouldn't be the $300.

Anyone know of any alternatives?  Does this sound like the right price range?
