that's difficult , if for a friend , is it family or friend or just someone off the street ?

You may just want to base it on time, say an hourly rate plus any additional cost incurred.

That is really a personal choice.
Professional data recovery services have clean rooms and
actually take the disks out of the drive and put them in the housing
of a new drive.
They charge around $300+.
It sounds like yours is more of a personal favor type situation,so you
would want to charge what is fair to you without making her jaw drop and go
"it's how much?!!" :)

how annoying, do you want to do any further work for them , too cheap and you will be asked by everyone , do you want further work from them and other co-workers , if so make it worth your while , also have a look at a few shops/computer repairs in your area and see if you can get an idea there

are you purchasing any software to do the job
