MIT receives discounted pricing and has account representatives with several third-party professional data recovery services. These services specialize in difficult data- and disk-recovery solutions. These companies have expert engineers, scientists, and resources allowing for far more sophisticated recovery services than normal computer repair and service shops, including clean room services, platter removal and remounting, etc.
Please note that data recovery services can be expensive but often succeed where simple software tools will not. It is up to each individual to decide whether recovering data warrants the expense. MIT has no formal recommendation for a specific service or method. Some of the companies will give you a free assessment and then ask you whether you would like recovery to be done
