Default Trying to pull data off dead drive...

My old Seagate is starting to die on me here. It takes me like 10 - 15 minutes to boot Windows with it connected (as slave).

Once I'm in Windows, my pc freezes every minute or so for a few seconds. Explorer freezes when I try to access the drive through My Computer, and the command prompt freezes when I try to access the drive through that.

Is there any way to save the data? I REALLY need to have this data.

Thanks.

It was at one point, yes.

I honestly don't even care about the drive. I realize it's going to die and I don't care, I already replaced it - I just need the data!
