Recovering data with Photorec

Recently someone dropped off a laptop for assessment. The laptop powered on, but couldn't boot from the hard drive. We booted to a Linux live environment and ran Gsmartcontrol. GSmartcontrol showed the drive had unrecoverable errors. When we mentioned that the drive was failing the person asked if it might be possible to recover data.
