Hard drive on tower is no good but also has recovery on it.

I am working on an HP with a seagate hard drive.   The drive is coming back with unreadable sectors and Seatools cannot fix them.  The issue is the Recovery partition is on this drive.   I have another brand new drive but need to get the recovery onto that new drive.   How can I do this?

is the issue progressive?... Meaning does the drive work fine for a while then eventually craps out?

Yes.  The drive in the past few days has begun to be non-responsive after a couple minutes.   It will run unbelievably slow, sometimes it will not boot up.   I ran the Seagate HD diagnostics and it gave me a list of about 30 sectors that had issue.   When Iran the Seatools, it said repair failure.

Well I was able to take the drive out and put in an external enclosure and save the data.   I also made a copy of the recovery drive.   Ok, thanks for the help any way
