Donald .. I recently shut down my repair shop, but what I'd suggest is
running SpinRite on the drive, in a separate computer.

> I am asking anyone in the group if they might have the ability to help
with recovery of data on a desktop SATA disk.
> I have a 1 Tb SATA desktop disk that was used with Windows XP
Professional. At least 500+ Gb of data files need to be recovered. This may
have an OS installed but is not needed, just the recovery of data files.
> It is possible to access folders and files but the response time is very
long. The contents of a file is then viewed and appears to be OK, but this
is only one file at a time. Therefore any type of simple folder and file
copy seems to just hang.
> I purchased a new 1 Tb SATA disk and would like to have the folders and
files copied onto the new disk, as much as might be possible.
> I would be able to send the disks to whomever might help or I could bring
the disks to M.A.R.C.H. on Sunday or any other day. Or I could bring the
disks to another place within a practical range of about 100 miles from
> I will pay for services provided and shipping as necessary.
