    I do this for a living.  We see what e can do locally (read cheap and fast).  If
    we can't recover any data, we send it off to Drive Savers. (read expensive and
    slow, but effective).  You are welcome to give me a call.

    said he was, but latest backup is 6mo. ago...
    Need help here Smart Guys.
