I have an external HDD that is starting to fail, it has some bad sectors. It's a 1TB fujitsu siemens case with a western digital HDD inside.
Eventually I will backup the whole drive with some backup/imaging software. But atm i dont have the free space to do that. Atm I want to copy some video files, but i'm not able to because the drive hangs while copying a certain file, and disconnects. If i try to resume (using tera copy, great tool btw) it hangs again and disconnects...
I don't seem to easily find a tool to copy that one file (and maybe others later), preferably freeware of course.
i have run chkdsk /r on that drive, and about 4 hours in it was at 1% (phase 1,2 and 3 where don't in a few minutes, phase 4 took hours to get from 0). Atm I don't have access to a pc that can run long enough to get the job done in one sitting.
Is there a better tool out there so I could cut this job in pieces? (or faster, but that seems unlikely)
