Bad Data Address Mark

By computer_lynx ·
I have a Western Digital Hard Drive that gives and error code of 0536 (Bad Data Address Mark - one instance).

Does anyone know of any utility that I can use to transfer any readable data to a new drive?

I have tried a couple utilities but theyalways error out before I can get any data off the drive. Any help would be really appreciated. Any other sugestions would be very helpfull as well.

Thanks

I have one question for you? Did you run the Western Digital Data Lifeguard Online Diagnostics test to get the code? If not try this link: http://www.wdc.com/service/lifeguard/dlg_welcome.html . You might be able to recover the data with this software. If this was already done let me know and we can solve this problem.

Thanks

I didn't try the online version of Data Lifeguard - I downloaded the software and booted off of their (WD's) disk it created and ran the software from there. I will give the online verison a try and see what happens.

Thanks

You could use a program like powerquest drivecopy but if the bad cluster(s) is(are) within data the likelihood of retrieveing the data is usually slim to none. Your best bet is to do it now before the HDD gets any worse. The best way to get you data off is by hooking up the HDD to another machine and copy the contents over to that drive. Or you could hook up a slave drive and copy every thing you neeed to that.

IF YOU ARE TRYING TO TRANFER DATA TO A NEW HARD DRIVE TRY TO BACKUP (ALL) THE DATA AND REISNTALL YOU OS TO YOU NEW HARD DRIVE.
