Question about Western Digital (WD5000AAKS) 500 GB SATA Hard Drive
You should boot from a Linux live cd and see if you can copy the data. Hopefully the bad sectors are not where your data is stored, but if that is the case you can use Hiren's Boot CD also booted from CD (not runned from Windows) and use one of it's tools for bad sectors recovery. That should isolate the bad sectors from beeing accesed to that the OS could run on that HDD, but this also means that some of your data may be lost. If you don't have a Linux CD get it from here . Also download Hiren's Boot CD from here .
