well, there are several ways to go about it and it depends on what happened and what you want to recover. you may just need a bootable OS, without knowing the details of what happened I can't recommend a Best solution. it my be as simple as putting the drive in a nother system/ booting to a bootable os ( http://s-t-d.org/ )
mount the drive, a USB drive, and copy the files to a USB flash drive and you have your data or For a police investigation it my require a bit for bit copy of the hard drive.

Ouch, well i did a quick google search and found this http://www.extremetech.com/article2/...1928207,00.asp
but, i have not tried it. if you lose JUST the partition table then the data is still there the hard drive/computer just dose not know where and what format it is. let me know if this helps
