How can I recover data from my crashed hard drive?

My laptop’s hard drive crashed. I went to someone else and got the hard drive replaced, but they could not recover my data. You may try PhotoRec as for https://www.systutorials.com/qa/1399/how-can-i-recover-deleted-photos-from-samsung . Although its named with “Photo”, PhotoRec can recover many kinds of files as listed in http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/File_Formats_Recovered_By_PhotoRec . Answered by Eric Z Ma.
