You might want to give Recovery is Possible (RIPLInux) a try, 
http://sourceforge.net/projects/riplinuxmeta4s/ .  
(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.
http://www.sysresccd.org/SystemRescueCd_Homepage

Both disks copy data from failing drives causing them as little
additional damage as possible.
