I ran the windows repair console and inserted the following commands and nothing helped. Instead the scan now fails immediately and shows there are one or more bad sectors on the hard drive.
chkdsk /r /p
I have tried ACTIVE Partition Recovery and other various softwares found on the Hiren's BootCD.
All I want to be able to do is get the files off, afterwards I am replacing the drive. The bare minimum that I need off are one and a half years of jpg photos that have not been backed up.
Thanks for your Time
Hope you can help me.
