I tried downloading that software but gave an error, think its only for windows 98/Me/XPIts way easier and much faster using a desktop with the failing drive and the target attached using SATA ports to the second and third ports. You can then boot the PC's original drive and use any decent cloning utility to perform a physical copy of one drive to the other.
Rawcopy works fine (again, choosing the physical devices) even though it doesn't give you much of a report when its done.
Afterwards, if the copy was mostly successful, run CHKDSK on the copy (NOT CHKDSK /R, ever!).
