    I`m using WindowsXP ParetoLogic datarecovery to recover my 320Gb HD and the other one is called Stellar Phoenix it recover my 400Gb HD at the same time in 2 different computers.
    The one 400Gb HD it takes about 2.5days to recover over 700000000 files.
    Well I don`t have suse install at all,but I make me note about Parted Magic in the future.

    You can but try.
    If it's any comfort to you - Hard Drives do spin and they do make a sound, but only you can determine the reality of where you are with this.

    Really depends on the nature of the failure. I started doing recovery on
    a 1 TB drive that died about 3 weeks ago - it's gradually gotten worse,
    and now the OS won't even detect it when I plug it in (it's a USB
    drive). If it makes a "click click click" noise when you plug it in,
    chances aren't good short of going anywhere but to a professional data
    recovery service.

    And that's pricey.

    Some people have said that putting the drive in the freezer can help;
    when I started my recovery, that seemed to be working, but towards the
    end, I was getting 40 minutes to an hour at a time (earlier I was getting
    a max of 20 minutes), and I wasn't doing the "stick it in the freezer for
    an hour first" routine. I've read a few things suggesting that with
    newer drives, this trick doesn't work as well and that you can cause
    permanent damage if you either leave the drive in too long or you get
    condensation (which can cause oxidation - ie rust - and ruin the drive).

    Fortunately for me, most of what was on that drive was just backups from
    other systems, so recovery isn't a *huge* deal, just would've saved me
    some time backing stuff up and organising it on the new 2 TB drive I
    bought to replace the old one.

    Ah well...

    Jim
