No it will still have the virus's and crap...

Virus's are not a bad physical problem if this is what you are thinking

I think he means he has a failing drive and wants to move the data to another drive so he can still access it

In which case this depends how bad your drive is buggered, if you can't access a file on your current drive, it'll be corrupt on any other drive...you can get rescue programs however
