    Data recovery is fraught with problems, do it wrong and it's gone forever. There are numerous "free" usb data recovery tools available on the net, but none give 100% guarantee that you will get your data back.

    Depending on how "valuable" you consider the data, a data recovery service is the best bet but they are expensive.

    Have you other backups of the data on another drive you can use...

    Depends where you live, here in Australia a company such as Payam their charges vary.

    You can Google for these type of services where you live, or look in the Yellow Pages...
