Hail all you hardware veterans! I need some assistance here.

My co-worker and I are trying to recover Outlook personal files (.psd)
from a fried hard drive. The user in question moved his personal
folder off the Exchange server onto his local drive at one point.
Later on his drive got fried (I don't know how, though I've been
trying to find out), and won't boot up. So he needs to get those files

We can't boot from the drive at all, but my co-worker used
EasyRecovery to get to the drive. But she can only access the drive's
system files--the .ini files and such.

Any ideas or suggestions? Or are we pretty much SOL?
