It seems like everyone has an old hard drive or broken laptop with pictures of their kids on it or some other irreplaceable data. The idiots at geek squad charge a ridiculous price for this service and look at all your private stuff if they feel like it.
So, I don't look, and I'm not expensive. Drop off or ship me your device and a flash drive or external hard drive to hold the recovered files and I'll use data forensic techniques on it to recover whatever is recoverable.
If I can't recover what you're after I'll give you advice on reputable companies that do a more thorough (albeit extremely expensive) job.
I can't guarantee success, or the condition of equipment--this is not an exact science and sometimes stuff breaks, but I've been doing this for friends and family for a decade and can recover stuff more often than not.
