To be honest, it's sort of the go to software the gurus recommend on this forum (at least the free version (home)) to recover vital data.. The free version has limits on recoverable data amounts obviously
Personally, I haven't used it myself. I never had the need to so far, I use Acronis True Image Home and Disk Director to handle my drives and clone/image them but they're both obviously pointless in this particular scenario.
Did you manage to get your desktop up and running again?
I forgot to mention there are some other alternatives as well if you're so inclined. http://www.easeus.com/partition-recovery/ http://www.piriform.com/recuva
