Hi, I have a 2tb wd green hard-drive which is currently failing, when it is connected to the computer I get the classic :
- Computer freezes often. When it happens, the mouse cursor is unmovable and keyboard input is ignored. Nothing works and a restart is required to recover the computer.
- File access mysteriously slows to a turtle’s pace. Saving files or open files simply takes forever
I'm trying to backup the content by just copy-pasting into another drive but it seems that each time it reach a corrupted file the system hangs up and I pretty much have to restart the computer.
Is there some sort of backup that could either skip the corrupted bit and keep going or copy the corrupted file as is, or find the corrupted sector and skip them ???
Would a linux live-cd or runing in safe mode or backup utility help ?
