Recover harddrive data

Is there any free (preferably open source) hard drive recovery software for windows? I have taken the hard drive out of an old laptop and have connected it via usb to my pc.

For free software, I would suggest Recuva which is available on Ninite.

I would recommend Ninite as it skips out the toolbar. You can deselect it during installation, but Ninite takes all the trouble away!
