If your hard disk crashed, you can recover the files through steps as below:

1. Try a commercial disk-repair utility, although success with these is somewhat limited if you didn't install the software before you experienced the crash.

2. If a disk appears to be irreparable and if the data is valuable enough, you can send the entire disk to a specialized drive recovery service that will disassemble it and retrieve as much data as possible. Expect to pay at least a couple hundred dollars, though (payable even when they don't recover anything). Is backing up regularly starting to sound like a good idea?

Eventually, all hard drives may crash. If you can't back up your entire drive, at least back up the data that you wouldn't want to lose forever.

Do some preventive measures. First, you have to make imaging of your bad hard disk onto a good one. This is your only way to keep your hard disk's status on condition. If, somehow, you fail your attempts to recover your disk, you still have a backup. So you would have chances to retry the recovering another way.
