Hello, I have a double OS system, where a certain partition is used by Ubuntu, while another one is used by Windows. So, maybe prior to the last Windows update, I'm not able to boot the Windows OS correctly, not even in Safe Mode.
I still can use Ubuntu, although I had to correct some of the sectors which appeared to be damaged in order to keep logging into Ubuntu. And I think there may be more damaged blocks in the Windows NTFS partition, which is probably the reason why I can't access it.
Okay, I know that I can use badblocks under Ubuntu in order to try to 'fix' those blocks... and maybe after that format that partition, but there is some data on that partition I would like to recover somehow, if it's possible.
Is there any way to do that? Because I cannot access Windows (I don't know if there is some way to do it), nor I can mount that partition under Ubuntu (it throws me some errors). Would it be possible to repair the damaged blocks and still mount that partition? I don't want to try it without complete knowledge. Should I check if upgrading the BIOS may help? Or is there any other way to solve this problem?
