Thanks konazxiii - that approach makes sense. Just to close the thread, the data was a high priority so I looked at 3 pros: https://drivesaversdatarecovery.com/ , https://www.stellarinfo.com/ and https://www.ontrack.com/ All came recommended (especially the first) and all seemed reputable. Price was also a factor, and the latter came in with the lowest quote range so I went with them. Their communication was a little patchy at times, but they got the job done as promised (I received an encrypted external USB drive with the needed data) and within my budget.
I have a Window 7 laptop that has some important data and hasn't been backed up in a while and just stopped booting (I know, I know, just a perfect storm of circumstances). I removed the HDD and plugged it into a working W10 Pro PC via SATA. I couldn't get Disk Management to see the drive, but I think Recuva might be seeing it as Local Drive (\\.\HarddiskVolume2). But when I try to run a scan I get the message [\\.\HarddiskVolume2] Unable to determine file system type. Any gurus out there have any advice on what I should do at this point? Many thanks in advance! Dan G
