Recover Data from HDD

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware (More info?)

I have a HDD which appears to be faulty, I ran Easy Recovery Pro and did a
full diagnostic test which reported the following

EasyRecovery(TM) Professional - DriveTests

Test Selected: Full Diagnostic Test


Running Full Diagnostic Test.

Testing drive WDC AC28 400R.


I/O Error on sector 541083.

I/O Error on sector 588235.

I/O Error on sector 593627.


I/O Error on sector 736757.

I/O Error on sector 736758.

I/O Error on sector 737687.


I/O Error on sector 636973.

I/O Error on sector 683017.

I/O Error on sector 685693.


I/O Error on sector 780769.

I/O Error on sector 781586.

I/O Error on sector 789675.


I/O Error on sector 825839.

I/O Error on sector 873659.

I/O Error on sector 875797.


Then I have tried to transfer files from this hdd to another and a few would
transfer across and things appear to stop or slow down to the extent of
cancellation.


I have even tried to transfer the files in does to another hdd and also had
a few files transfer and it would prompt me to abort/retry/fail


Is there a way I can get some files of this drive without sending it in to a
hdd specialist for $100 per MB to recover??


Cheers

    There are two ways to do this:
    - The easy way: Restore the files from backup.
    - The hard way: Boot the machine with a Win98
    boot disk from www.bootdisk.com, then run
    ntfsdos.exe /L:EF
    You can now copy individual files to floppy disk
    or to a slave disk. You will only see short file
    names. ntfsdos.exe comes from www.sysinternals.com.

    Thanks, I forgot to mention that the HDD is install with Windows 98.

    Are you saying that this is a dual-boot system with Win98
    operative? If so, just copy your files across!

    No, it doesn't have windows xp on it at all, just 98, I've realised I have
    posted to the wrong group
