I will apreciate some advices on my problem. I have an HDD external (over USB) but one day it fail and my OS (W7) doesn`t recognize it anymore. I connected my HDD trougth SATA to my PC and i`m running photorecovery. I tried with partition recovery but take so much time and without results. In photorecovery, the interface show me errors in the reading of the blocks, i want to be sure if it is common, photorecovery says that left 11793 hours...
Wath do you think? I have to leave the program running or it is done and my data is lost?
PD: Sorry my Inglish...

The disk is probably physically damaged, it's why you get all those error messages. If you really want to recover your data, you will have to contact a specialized data recovery company.
