A drive with 717 reallocated sectors can't be trusted. I recommend that you replace it.

The flatlined benchmark suggests that the drive may be running in PIO mode.

Windows XP will downgrade a drive's performance from DMA mode to PIO mode if it detects more than 6 CRC errors.

DMA Mode for ATA/ATAPI Devices in Windows XP:

DMA reverts to PIO:

Do not format your drive -- formatting is data destructive.

Your drive now appears to be running in DMA mode. However there appear to be many slow sectors.

You need to clone your drive, sector by sector, and then use data recovery software on your clone, if necessary.

Some freeware cloning tools are ...

HDclone: http://www.miray.de/products/sat.hdclone.html
dd_rescue: http://www.garloff.de/kurt/linux/ddrescue/
ddrescue: http://www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/ddrescue.html

Comparison between ddrescue and dd_rescue:
http://www.forensicswiki.org/wiki/Ddrescue

ddrescue can perform multipass cloning. It clones the easy sectors on the first pass, and attempts the more difficult ones on subsequent passes.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ddrescue#R ... ants_of_dd
http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/Damaged_Hard_Disk

The following is a GNU ddrescue example from Wikipedia:

# first, grab most of the error-free areas in a hurry:

ddrescue -n /dev/old_disk /dev/new_disk rescued.log

# then try to recover as much of the dicey areas as possible:

ddrescue -r 1 /dev/old_disk /dev/new_disk rescued.log

Formatted ? Then data was already lost. Then :

Until you don't make PROPER questions and tell things as things are, you won't get proper answers. Crystal balls don't help, unfortunately.

i have 4 partitions .... c d e f
c has windows and i only format c drive not others coz other has data.
i only tried to copy files from c drive not from others and yesterday when i tried to copy from other drives i could not copy from them also .
crc errors were found in the files and error messages came that the file is corrupted now ..also i checked that i have 3 years warranty left on my hard drive...
but i need to backup my data but the data is corrupted ...
will it be still corrupted after using recovery software or it will come to its original state as it was earlier..

hdd regenerator only shows delays with 0 bad sectors ..
hd tune pro shows reallocated sector count as
current -80
worst -80
threshold- 36
data -814
status - warning

but i read somewhere that new hard drives coming do not show bad sectors in chkdsk utility .

this time i am crystal clear and will be always from next time.
sorry for inconvenience caused..

Your thread began with 717 reallocated sectors, now you have 814. Backup or clone whatever data you can ASAP.

My previous post lists three possibles. If you're not comfortable with any of them, then perhaps someone could recommend others.

Alternatively, see this thread:
