Here's the deal - A WinXP HD that was crashed (supposedly) by a virus. To date, one 'tech' attempted data recovery using some utility which confirmed the data was still intact on the HD. This utility crashed shortly thereafter, and the tech could do nothing further. :(
I know what needs to be done, but I am not able to go to Las Vegas at present - thus the reason for a COMPETENT pc tech who knows more than just Windows (Linux, for example..). If anyone reading this knows of someone in the area who can help, please send me their number.
Thanks in advance! ;)
