Hello Abdsalamah mate have a go with this to get the data back before the drive goes belly up
BOOTABLE UBUNTU
Make a bootable Ubuntu disk Get Ubuntu | Download | Ubuntu
Set the BIOS to boot from the optical when the machine boots it will show you a screen with TRY or INSTALL > select TRY not INSTALL
When it is finished - it takes very little time you will get a screen like in the pic .
Open the drive you want > User and dig down until you get to the data / settings you may be able to copy / paste the material you want to an external source or other installed drive doing this.
I am not sure if it will but I have recovered tons of data etc using this method both on "dead" or just plain drives that you cannot get data from using Windows.

There is another option but I find the Ubuntu a little quicker to do not that the Linux is no good just takes a little more setting up. Emergency Kit - save your files from a dead OS

Hi:

Is this the same computer for which you created what looks like an identical, duplicate post here:

So Scared. If my HDD erases my data..

If so, perhaps the forum mod team may merge/combine them, to reduce confusion and clutter.

Cheers,

MM
