When a drive is dead, its dead. Replacement time as they say above.

@davegeeit, dammyjay35 has already backed up the data. No need for data recovery software.

@dammyjay35, you could at least see the reason for the warning by examining your drive's SMART report. Look for reallocated, pending, or uncorrectable sectors.

Very true. He did say he already backed up his 'files'. But if he can make a disk image instead of just backing up files (or in addition to), he can simply restore his entire disk to his new one.

replacing the hard disk with, a new one is what is needed but it may cost you more, but the good news is that you can make the hard disk external(the one which is not working).

True, I still use my 30GB IBM DEATHSTAR for testing even after some clicking of death...
