I need a utility that can analyse a disk at a very low level AND
write single sectors, or a range of sectors to a file (WinXP).
I've got a damaged partition that's unreadable and I want to try and retrieve some files (mainly old C projects - stored in human-readable format so it shouldn't be too much bother).
I've found one facility that looks at the partition sector-by-sector (and sure enough, there's data there) and it can save sectors to disc but only one at a time. And I'm not going to manually sift through 40000+ sectors.
I've found facilities that CLAIM to do what I want but cannot read the partition.
Does anyone know of a utility that can do what I need?
