Is it possible to recover something?

A couple of years ago, the hard drive used as an external and when watching a video from disk to the TV, accidentally started to format, then immediately broke the formatting (or turn off the TV, or just clicked cancel) after connected to the computer it is not read, it is formatted and it can be open, but really just hung out, a few years later I found it, when you connect to a computer it is visible, but as before, when filling out like 30 GB starts to hang. Now I'm scanning program victoria 4.47 over 500 bad blocks. Is it possible to recover photos?
That's SMART:

Is it possible to recover photos?
There, but small because-
Now I'm scanning program victoria 4.47


If a person wants to recover from disk - it either is specialists or restores itself.
And if a person scans a disk program victoria he just does not want to recover anything.
And what's the problem? Mode ignore, read. This is not a bug fix, but an evaluation of the disk data may be corrupted? How, then, do in the future, what to do in order to restore information from a disk with bad blocks? - Gloria19 commented on April 9th 20 at 09:35
@Gloria19, XS that you have there with the disc. Maybe he's got gashes, and dust inside flies? So simple spinup and spin the disks even without reading / writing can enhance the degradation of every second. And all sorts of testing...

To remove the image, playing with it with testdisk \ r.studio, be prepared for the fact that to get did not succeed, and-if possible - a little bit, and most likely with broken directory structure and file names. So no wonder you said above about backup. If the photo is important - keep copies at least in the future.

Can you take in a normal kontoru data recovery, the price tag will be very unpleasant. - Aglae_Herman commented on April 9th 20 at 09:38
And what's the problem?
For the bad drive any inclusion is a problem.
And the scan...
How, then, do in the future, what to do in order to restore information from a disk with bad blocks?
For example to remove the image by ignoring errors, and then to be able to work with the image. - samanta.Deckow commented on April 9th 20 at 09:41

To make a copy with dd_rescue, and then from this copy try to take pictures of a program like testdisk.

If no skills for such work, bring in a good a data recovery service.
Before backup you need something to do with bad blocks? These areas can't read, they can be corrected? in the same Victoria, there is the function remap.

Make a backup before the appearance of bad blocks. - samanta.Deckow commented on April 9th 20 at 09:40

it is better to restore from backup

As I understand it, the answer implies that it is better to restore photos from formatted _not_ broken disco, and otdelno lying on the normal media bekapa. - Aglae_Herman commented on April 9th 20 at 09:42
So backup you first need to do so I ask whether it is necessary to first fix the bad sectors before doing a backup? - Gloria19 commented on April 9th 20 at 09:45
with so many better not to risk and make a backup / image and to work with him - flossie.Metz14 commented on April 9th 20 at 09:48
@Gloria19,
So a backup must first do
So.
And then, when the disk appears bad blocks, you can safely throw the disk in the trash, and files to get backup.

shouldn't you first fix bad sectors before doing a backup?
When there was a damaged sector it is necessary to restore from backup to the new drive and discard the old one. - samanta.Deckow commented on April 9th 20 at 09:51
@samanta.Deckow, I get That, I will consider for the future, but the CD was damaged I did not, and it happened many years ago, now I try to first make a backup of this ROM and try to restore a photo or try to fix bad sectors and then do a backup. - Gloria19 commented on April 9th 20 at 09:54
but the CD was damaged I did not, and it happened many years ago
If the disk is damaged many years ago - the probability of recovery is zero.
It's probably over the years, hooked up, formatted, probably recorded on it.

now, I try to first make a backup of this ROM
No. There is no such thing as a backup drive. Backup is a backup of data.
You have valuable data then make a backup.

If you want to backup data stored on the damaged disk, they should first recover and then to do a backup.

and try to restore a photo or try to fix bad sectors
To really decide what you want to do data recover or a corrupted sector, these objectives are diametrically opposed.
Recovery of bad sectors excludes data recovery. - samanta.Deckow commented on April 9th 20 at 09:57
@samanta.Deckow, Deleted after formatting it lay all these years in a box. You tell me, please answer two questions:
1) is it Worth trying to fix bad sectors or do a backup and try to restore anything?
2) How to know how much of the disk is not reallocated sectors (i.e. the backup number of sectors, which are replaced with damaged)? - Gloria19 commented on April 9th 20 at 10:00
1)in Any case.
2)Why should you? It depends on the specific model, this information need to look in the manufacturer's documentation if you have access to it. - samanta.Deckow commented on April 9th 20 at 10:03

when filling out like 30 GB starts to hang
Please specify: are you on the drive from which you want to recover data, write something (s)?
If Yes, then immediately stop.

Now I'm scanning program victoria
But why?
The fact that the disk is bad, it is already clear. The problem of recovering photos already formulated.
Torment disk additionally, you want the task to complicate things?

If you are looking to contact the company involved in recovery professionally (and that would be the best option, because the disk state is not getting any better), then you need to make a full sector-by-sector copy of a disk.

From simple options would be a bad gddrescue (GNU ddrescue), if you are familiar with Linux. If not, then use a hex editor like WinHex or CI Hex Viewer.

The tool then it is necessary to scan. For this download old version R. saver (she knows how to work with images), open the image file and run a full analysis.

Remap, which you mention in your review, you harmful. If there is an unstable sector that contains any information, they have to try insto read, not to replace a working (but empty) from the reserve. Otherwise, the files to which they relate, will be damaged.
However, work on the subtraction problem areas should be carried out only after all right read already read.

in Your case if photos from the drive are really important for You, then:
1-stop mock the disk -run on Victoria way will only aggravate the situation and attempt to treat the trouble will make things worse
2 - if the data is important then, as many advised look for data recovery from hard drives in Your city or nearest major city. In Kiev there is a sense of appeal to kdr or epos. in the first case cheaper, but less famous. MSC is better to contact storelab or r.lab
