Running data Recovery is not testing the HD. You test the HD using the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan followed by Disk Check run from Command Line on the installer or Repair CD.

Many of these maker's tests have bootable flash options. There are a lot of them on Ultimate Boot CD: Easily Boot Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD) from a USB flash drive | USB Pen Drive Linux as well as data rescue software to copy out your files if they are seen, or try to Recover them if they're not seen.

I just completed it, but sadly It only found a few directories, none of which I know of.

Try repairing the HD using the methods I gave you, to see if data can be seen and rescued.

You skipped to data Recovery which is the third and last step.

Ok, I put the disk into the computer, but I can't find a way to boot and run the diagnostics from the USB stick. I'm sure its formatted properly because its what I used to install windows on our family computer a few months ago... Any help with that?

Meanwhile I'll be looking for some other methods!

Thanks all!

Ok, I decided I would run the software from Western Digital (thats my hard disk company) but instead of booting from it, I will run a test on my laptop with my hard disk attached in my external case. Yes, I know its not the best alternative, but with time slowly passing its the best thing I can do for now. If I manage to find a way, I will try to run it on my other computer (better choice because it is common that I get bsods on my laptop when doing a scan on the failed drive.)

However, for now I will try to run a scan on my laptop.

The scans only run on internal HD's.
You can run Western Digital lifeguard from stick using Ultimate boot CD:

Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD) from a USB flash drive | USB Pen Drive Linux

It's listed there as DLG 5. Run the extended scan.

I ran the lifeguard extended scan on the hdd (as external drive, though) however it said it had too many bad sectors and aborted the scan. Well, I guess my hard disk data is unrecoverable, and it's just a waste of time, so I started a full write 0s erase on the hard disk. (still external). Thanks for the link, I will try that if it fails to write 0s to the disk.

Yes I know I will lose my data, but there's no more solution, and now my top priority has moved on to see what the actual cause of the damage is. Thanks for the support!!

P.S. If the drive is not recoverable in any way, i'm still happy cuz I can see the insides!!!
