My System Specs

Default which software to recover files from damaged harddrive?

this hard drive was banged and then the OS wouldn't boot I tried multiple things to get it up and running but nothing worked. I then pulled the drive out of the laptop it was in and plugged it into one of my PC's and everything showed up on the drive all the windows folders and such but like an idiot I moved my Monitor which pressed on my power block switch and it turned off everything that was plugged into it so I hard to turn the switch back on and fire up my system again but this time I couldn't access the hard drive at all.

is there any other software out there that is good that would be able to recover files off of the drive

I just want to try and recover some pictures and music and whatever other personal files I can off of a damaged/messed up laptop hard drive.
I was running Stellar Phoenix and it showed one of the photos in the small screen that are on the drive but it hasn't moved past 2% on the scanner since late yesterday afternoon.
