My guess is that they are too damaged to be recovered. You can still try this with a commercial app called Spinrite; its very good at fixing physical HDD damage. alidan March 23, 2010 5:29:15 AM i dont realy care about retrieving the information, im more interested in what the information was part of. this hard drive largely consists of images i found, video i can get again, and archives i can get again. i would love to know what is damaged so i could re get it if possible because it was only 2 sectors im guessing that most of the data i couldnt retrieve was nothing i will notice but it would be nice to know 100% Related resources Dull Fonts lookup on xp ,7 ,8 - Forum Compact Chassis Lookup - Forum New modem, but still have DNS lookup troubles. - Forum Lookup all the recent post from all sections - Forum Boot sector vs boot loader. - Forum Can't find your answer ?

You either want to access the data on that harddrive, or not. If you do, try as suggested; Spinrite will do the job, correct your damage and allow you to check the contents and copy them somewhere safe if you want. alidan March 25, 2010 7:19:24 PM sorry its hard to explain. i dont care about the info in those sectors, and most likely in normal computer use i would never even notice it was gone. but i would like to know what data was attached to that sector.
