I have a harddrive that is going, and want to make a backup before it completely bites it.
Problem is, disk imaging apps like Macrium Reflect tend to fail because the harddive will intermittendly stop working for a while then start working again after a while. This makes most backup apps fail... unless I enable ignore on error, but then I will have holes of missing data everywhere in the backup image.
It there any (preferably freeware for windows) disk imaging app that can persistantly retry on error until it gets the entire image? This should work as the drive keeps continuing to work after a while of being unresponsive. I don't care if this will drastically make the drive fail faster, I just want to create a backup from it so I can image it to a new drive before its 100% unreadable. I am going to trash this thing once I get a backup off of it anyway.
