Hard Drive Diagnostic Tools
Hard drive diagnostic utilities are used primarily for determining the physical condition of your hard drive, (drive integrity and read/write verification). If you are having computer problems which you suspect are hard drive related, you can test it with one of the following:
- Hitachi "Drive Fitness Test"
- Seagate / Maxtor "SeaTools"
I don't believe Toshiba provides diagnostic tools for their hard drives. You might try Seagate's "SeaTools for Windows":
SeaTools for Windows is a comprehensive, easy-to-use diagnostic tool that helps you quickly determine the condition of the disc drive in your external hard drive, desktop or notebook computer. It includes several tests that will examine the physical media on your Seagate or Maxtor disc drive and any other non-Seagate disc drive.
SeaTools for Windows tests USB, 1394, ATA (PATA/IDE), SATA and SCSI drives. It installs onto your system. SeaTools for Windows is completely data safe.

That's good news.
My hard drive is fine, ...
Next, I'd try formatting the scrambled partition, (not the recovery partition), and then attempt the recovery process once again.
