I have a bit of a problem here... My laptop is getting on in years (3 years old, now) and has been in for repairs many times because of different problems (broken hinge, cracked screen, melted motherboard... bad times), but this is a very new error I'm seeing.

My laptop has two hard drives, a C: and a F: along with two (for some reason) "Recovery" hard drives (D: and G:). For some reason, my F: drive is having an I/O error and refuses to open. It started when I was trying to move files from my crowded C: drive and it gives me a message saying simply that it can't access that drive due to an I/O error.

Other than that, I run Vista (much to my chagrin), 2 gigs of RAM, and... well, I'll try to post my DxDiag.doc if it's needed.

What I'm wondering mostly is if there's any fix for this, and I'd like to save a "Format and Fix" approach if possible because the few files I did get onto my other drives are precious little trinkets that I don't believe I'll be able to replicate.

Much thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, no; it's not one of the recovery drives.

Sorry to wall-of-text, but here's the DxDiag:(see attached now that I'm not blind.)
