If you use recovery disk, yes you may lose all your data however it sounds like the hard drive has crashed anyways and you'll need a new hard drive.

You need to replace your hard drive, as the other one is toast, I doubt very much its the controller, or a software issue, try a new hard drive and your problem will go away.

Tips for a great answer:
detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and
time on the right hand side box. Select that date.
Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.
After reboot your problem should be resolved.
