Well it depends on what you mean by 'bad'.  If the hard drive is physically 'bad' ie not seen in the bios, or is making grinding or clicking sounds, no software is likely to be able to help you.  You option would then to be to send it to a data recovery company to recover the data, which can be very costly.

Telling us what you mean by 'bad' in more detail may make it easier to answer your question.
