my partition got fried - found a util that can rebuild it but it can't write the new table i think because the area is now in a bad sector

i have an identical drive and think a solution would be to find an imaging app that will copy the contents (1's & 0's) to the new drive and then run the partition util to rebuild and then rewrite the table on the new disk.

any thoughts as to what software i could use or a different approach would be greatly appreciated

Whatever brand of drive you have, just go to the mfr. website and download their software. Most mfrs. have software for cloning drives, and it will usually tell you what files were defective so you can make a list and replace them.
