Another Free Tool

Yet Another Free Tool

Unstoppable Copier enables you to recover files from disks with physical damage like bad sectors, scratches or errors when reading data. Attempts to recover every readable piece and reassemble the file, which for most file types, can make it useable despite some parts being unrecoverable. Kindly suggested by BadNeighbor3.
