Recover files from hdd.

  1. For a couple of days ago my 80gb hdd wouldn't work anymore. It said: D:\ Is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. So i used Hdd Regenerator to remove bad sectors which took a very long time.
    My file system is unknown, but i used to have FAT32. It looks like my hdd has recovered, but now it says: The disk in drive D is not formatted. Do you want to format it know? I know that my stuff is still in that hdd. But how can i get it out? And what should i do?
    I use windows 2000.

    is that D: a separate disk or a partition?
    I've used HDDRegen a few times myself, and it is a non-destructive program with a great rate of success (unless the harddisk was destroyed already).
    Have you tried chkdsk /r?

    D: is a separate disk. I used hdd regen one more time today. I also used Get data back, and i found all my stuff i think. So i'm going to copy all my stuff over to a new hdd. But i'm not sure if the old hdd can still be used? Or is it a big chance for it to happen again?
    I've tried chkdsk /r , but it didn't work.
