If you're not completely baffled by a Linux command line, you could try booting with the MFS Live cd v1.4 and using
to copy the "bad" drive to another one if saving recordings is a consideration.
If not, don't bother trying to copy the bad one (but be sure it's bad and that the problem isn't caused by something else, like the notorious power supply), just copy from the other drive or restore from a truncated image, and save yourself the time.
