Full disk and bad sectors

  Countermeasure 19:35 05 Dec 2007

I have an external IDE backup disk with a USB connection. While doing a backup it filled up (tut-tut - sloppy admin - I know). It's not only full but its got bad sectors hence no space to repair the bad sectors. Can anyone suggest a recovery method so I can save something from it or do I just have to format it and lose the lot?
