How do you ID images on a defunct drive made after your last backup?  Do you have an app for that?

I have a separate drive for my photo data and I back it up to a mirror drive  at regular intervals so I don't have to reconstruct directories.  All I would have to do is go after the images on a defunct drive made after my last back up.

The maker of the drive suggested I use a recovery service - $500.
The maker would replace the drive on warranty.  I had the files
backed up on DVDs both on site and remotely, at a friend's house.  It
was a toss up between shelling out for a restoration or spending 3 or
4 days rebuilding the data on the replacement drive.
