I like to use testdisk and or ddrescue depending on the issue and the speed
corruption/scratching. Testdisk is very simple if you know the location of the
files. ddrescue is nice for imaging a damaged and or dieing drive as it can read
backwards and reread an area over and over again getting as much data as you can
so you can repair the disk at your leisure. Good luck.

i have a few hard disk malfunctioning. these are older disks and retrieving the
data is less crucial (though would be nice), but when i connect them to my
Linux, it says they report the wrong size. fsck, fdisk - all fail doing anything
(that i know how to do) with them. even SpinRite says it cannot do anything with
any idea on how to re-live them? as said, data on them is less important, but
they are a Seagate 160GB and WD 80GB, and i would like to use them.
