Most likely you can get the data off, but it depends on what is wrong. If it is just a bad data block, it is not a big deal.

I would suggest that you go to the web site of the manufacturer of the disk and see if they have a testing/diagnostics program. Run that. Often limited data problems can be remapped. If there are a lot of problems, then you need to get another disk.
