So far, PhotoRec is pulling their photos off.
If you look at the link I provided PhotoRec should be be able to pull off more than common photo extension files. I gather you can also setup other file extensions.
The big thing seems to you need to recover from a disk that no longer has a file system and recovery needs to be done at the byte level. I think PW assumes the file system data is intact.
I'd keep plugging away with PhotoRec or ask the people you are helping if they want to purchase the Easeus product for RAW data recovery.
I would guess
that RAW data recovery would be a slow process because it has to crawl its way through the whole disk at a byte level.
