I purchased Ghost 14.0 to copy a failing hard drive on a Windows XP Home Edition SP2 system. I put the failing drive into an external USB drive and attempted to copy one external USB drive to a second USB drive. I used the "copy drive" feature and selected "Ignore bad Sectors during copy" I got the message below which tells me take the identical steps already taken to remedy the problem. Further my external usb drive (the good one) is no longer recognized by my computer. It does not even show up as a drive on the "My Computer" screen. Unfortunately, I did this twice and now have two external drives that do not work. Does anyone know how to make the USB drives usable again?
Error EC8F17B3: Cannot complete copying of (K:\) drive. Error EC8F0409: Cannot copy source drive to destination location. Warning A7C30019: The type of errors encountered indicate that this hard disk drive is about to fail. It is recommended that this drive be replaced soon. To ignore this error and backup this drive, select "Ignore bad sectors during copy" from the advanced options in the Drive Backup Wizard. Error E7C3000F: Device \\?\SymantecSnapshot3 cannot read 7264 sectors starting at LBA 1210512. Error EBAB03F1: Data error (cyclic redundancy check).
