I have a hard drive here with a ton of bad sectors. Windows sees the information but I can't access most of it. Spinrite freezes during the recovery at .14% (yea .14 not 14). The drive passes Ontrack's Quick Diagnostic's Test but fails the Full Diagnostic Test. I've tried recovering the information with Ontrack but it hangs when it reaches a bad sector.
I'm contemplating opening it up and disassembling the drive and then reassembling it to see if that gives me enough life to recover the information. Is there anything that can be done before I give this a shot?
Its a 2.5" Toshiba brand hard drive.
