You may need to use dd to copy the entire drive to a file at a destination with sufficient
free space, then try to recover files from that image.

Subject: USB drive errors
I have a WD passport USB drive that has been working fine.
Just plugged it in and get input / output errors and it won't mount.
Mounted it manually with
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /mnt
it mounts fine and ls shows this.
ls: cannot access 'Locale': Input/output error

drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4096 Aug 11 2014 Windows
I have no idea what Locale is and there seems to be no way to do anything with it.
Any suggesting apart from using rsync to copy everything else off the drive and formatting
