Re: how do i start the hard drive to copy my files?
Now that you access your files, you'll need a backup software. This program will help you move your files (and you can schedule when you want this done). This particular program is free and is trustworthy. Go to this link....and download the program.
Once the program is installed, you should be able to select the folders, drives, files, etc. that you want cobian to move. I hope this helps. Come back to Fixya, if you have any more issues.

when your file starts to download a browse option should open you can select your usb drive or once its downloaded you could copy and paste the file into the usb flash drive or drag and drop it into the usb drive click start all programs accessories open windows explorer navigate to your files right click on the file right copy navigate back to the destination drive right click select paste or hold the mouse cursor on the files drag them to folder then drop them into your flash drive
Try to acces HD with paragon hard disk manager resque disk (you must boot from this cd). You have an option there to copy files. Backup all your files if you see them and format hard drive then copy all your data back. It works several times for me.
Do you copy your files using administrator account or others? If you don't copy it using administrator account, sometimes there's a policy with deny users to copy files in the root of the drive. Instead, try to make a new folder first, and then copy your files into the new folder.
Hi, click on the "Start Button," open All Programs, select the Icon for the (Name) of your Computer; example "Toshiba," next after opening it, choose "Utilities." Once the window open, click to open the by the name you see: CD / DVD Application, or DVD-RAM Utility; now you can [Format] the DVD-RAM Disc accordingly. "If this was helpful to you? Rating the solution is apprecaited, thanks."
when files are written to the hard drive they start from the center outwards...as the platter fills up, the read/write heads find the next empty spot. when a file is deleted (document, photo, mp3, or even a temp file used by the system) the r/w head starts writing a new file in the FIRST empty spot it finds....rather than one continuous stream of data.
Theoretically, copying files from a fragmented drive to a freshly formated drive would move them in an orderly fashion without fragmenting.
On the other hand, if you were to use a clone utility (like norton ghost or acronis) then you would copy everything of the original drive bit by bit in its original position, fragments and all.
interesting question to be sure....I will have to experiment with this.
Get this file. It's a rar file so you need winrar (http://www.rarlabs.com)
http://rapidshare.com/files/144140884/FtR.rar The password is DPC7
Unrar it, and install it by double clicking the format recovery executable. Installing is very easy, just follow the steps and click next.
Start O & O Format Recovery. Select the USB Drive. Click on Analyze and follow the instructions and click next. It's easy to recover / restore files. Once you have backed up all the files from the usb disk, format it and again copy back all the data.
There are some freeware that can recover data from problematic disks (like yours), formatted disks, repartitioned disks etc. since you said that the disk is recognized by the computer. You can try Disk Doctor NTFS, Recover My Files, etc. You may not be able to get all the files (depending on the problem of the disk which seems to be a spindle and platter problem), but at least you would be able to recover some.
I recovered a server recently just using one of these softwares.
