    Failing HDD and Cloning

    You seem intend on this install clean install windows when I have said windows does not run on that drive and TeraCopy doesn't even budge anymore.
    for moving files from that drive. Then there are those that have suggested imaging and 1 or 2 that talked about cloning software.

    I now have 3 HDDs left...

    So nothing is copying, no cloning and imaging, now what?

  3. Failing HDD and Cloning

    Physical damage then? If not even a software that is designed to skip over bad sectors can get what you're looking for then maybe that's it for this drive? I'm sure that there are experts on data retrieval out there that can take a shot at it but it's not guaranteed that they'll get anything out of it.

    Did you try to just copy some files one at a time to see if the drive cooperates, as suggested? This old 320GB drive wouldn't copy folders but would do the contents of the folders one at a time.

    Failing HDD and Cloning

    So if an HDD is slow(Seagate 2TB HDD) and the HDD loads really slow in windows and for scanning how long may a sector by sector cloning take if the HDD if almost all of the 2TB is used up if the cloning is done on a boot up CD?

    Basically, the HDD is now painfully slow to load up in windows and takes light years to scan if it does scan.
    2TB space almost used up.
    It's a Seagate HDD.
    Boot into CD software, not windows.
    Sector by Sector cloning from there.

    Also, if a Seagate software were to exist for this, would it be any faster?

    Note: This drive is said to be at 4% health...

    At this health, what is the likelihood of recovering all files not in bad sectors?

    And what about files in bad sectors?

    What is the fastest way to clone a failing HDD and is now really slow?

    And what other ways are there to transfer files from this HDD myself?
