I did once recover for someone off a 750GB drive that was simply not formattable anymore, it was just "you need to format before use" all the time but format failed each time.
GDB did recover their 30GB of personal pics and holiday movies, phew. But it scanned the drive for over 2 days (deep scan), and initially it saved about 300GB of "suspected files" of which only 30GB turned out to be the good ones (the filenames were gone, so you had to go through each of them to figure out what it was!). No need to recover windows and apps, it was just their personal stuff they were after.
I then also used dupe checkers and programs like BadPeggy to eliminate trash, bad JPEGs or dupes, because there were a lot of both!
