my second hard drive appears to have gone on the blink. I store a lot of important stuff on there and it's suddenly decided to pack up....when I try to access it it says corruted and unreadable..do any of you good folks know of any program I might use to at least recover some of the files......thankyou very much...Andy

There is always the FREEZER trick !

Seriously, put the HDD in a plastic bag and stick it in your freezer for a couple of hours or so, put it back in your PC and try again.

Do make sure that the bag or bags are well sealed or you will allow water in which would be a bad thing.
