“My friends Macbook’s hard drive has crashed and I’m in the process of replacing it. However, he had a lot of important data on that hard drive that he needs recovered. Is there any way to recover data from a corrupted hard drive? Or should I just tell him his files are gone? If it maters, the hard drive is in HFS file system. Please help!”
