    An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk3\DR11 during 

    So I have been getting this error a lot on my hard drive. It is dying. I have put a new drive int he machine, imaged it and I slaved this hard drive to the system via USB kit and have tried to recover the data. I get some then it resets. Over and over. Under Windows and Ubuntu. I got much further under Ubuntu than Windows, but it is a slow process. I was thinking I have another hdd that I ordered and I have a HDD duplicator device. Has anyone used a hard drive duplicator to get around an issue like this? I am wondering if it would cause too much stress to the hard drive, and I really do not need the whole drive backed up but it might be the fastest way to go.

You boot Ubuntu, How? From a live disk? USB.


Once booted you mount the drive and browse to the My Documents folder on the Windows drive, Then copy paste say My pictures, What happens? Do you get any messages?

I boot to Ubuntu on via a Live CD.I Have been able to get some of the data off of the system that way. But the last time I used it earlier today, I started getting booted out of the hard drive and then I could not get back into the User account on the Winddows drive. I got an error message that I didn't have permissions to access the folder. Which is a new one for me, never seen it before.
