You might want to give Recovery is Possible (RIPLInux) a try,
(I notice that developer Kent Robotti's site is gone, and code has not
been maintained since 2011.)
You could also try using the ddrescue utility on the other recovery disk
I mentioned, SystemRescueCd.
Both disks copy data from failing drives causing them as little
additional damage as possible.
