I have some data on external Toshiba hard disk (mostly video files) but it’s not working properly because it can play but gets stuck at some point. Now I want to backup all these files on my PC but cant copy them. Is there any tool to fix this?

    I would start by using "Roadkill's unstoppable copier", which will do copy everything it can and will not. If you then find that there are files that were not copied or are damaged, you can try to recover them using one of the tools recommended in http://www.makeuseof.com/pages/best-windows-software#toc5 .

    Do you get erro messages when you try to copy? If so, what are the errors saying?
