HDD data recovery help? 

HDD died, NTFS Master File Table got corrupted. Windows Recovery tools, chkdsk and dd choke on it. There weren't many personal files on this partition and I am resigned to reinstalling Windows, but there are a few things I'd like to recover, such as my Firefox profile. Any software recs for Windows or Linux to help? I will connect the HDD to another machine so it doesn't need to be bootable.


An update on this: Got everything copied over... somehow...? Didn't need to do any deep recovery, the data I actually needed wasn't in the corrupted blocks.

New system's all set up, just need to install a few more programs and I'm all set!

The real road block turned out to be Adobe's license servers for CS3 shutting down at some point in the last 4 years 🙃
