I have another option for you.
I would like you to boot up with another OS....Linux. You will boot off a CD-Iso. You will run that OS on Ram only. You will then be able to see your HDD, will mount it and transfer files to a flash drive. This is what you need to do...
- Download on another computer Puppy Linux to your desktop. It might take a while so be patient.
- You need to then burn the Iso to a CD disc. Here is a good freeware app if you do not already have one. IsoRecorder
Now you need to take the Cd to your bad PC.Do you know how to boot from the Cd? During the POST tap Esc (F2 and del sometimes also works) and get into the Bios. Once in the Bios maneuver to and change the Boot order to Cd. Exit out and choose the option to save your changes.
- Reboot. This will launch Puppy Linux!!! The directions from here are fairly self explanatory to load the OS. It will configure your screen resolution, language...etc.
- Right click on your HDD. You will find it in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Choose to mount the drive then you can access it....
- Connect a flashdrive or external HDD and transfer your files!!!!
Let me know if you have any questions.

if you create an image of a hard drive with bad sectors then mount it on another drive will the bad sectors transfer?
just a quick question, when u create an image of a partition is the image suppose to be the same size as the partition or smaller?
