Recover data from partition of non-bootable leopard install.

Hi all,


Running Kalyway 10.5.2 on a Toshiba Satellite A100-0FH


My Leopard install unexpectedly broke a few days back and all my data's still on the primary partition.


I've booted my Kalyway install disk and gone into Disk Utility and tried creating an image of the partition with all my data on it and saving it to an external HD, but I get an error right after the copy is complete.


The error reads: "Unable to create "disk0s2.dmg" - Input/Output error."


Are there any bootable file management programs out there that'll let me simply copy my data from the partition on my internal HD to an external HD?


Disk Utility appears not to have this functionality, but I can see all my data on the partition when I try saving an image of said partition to my external HD. [a browse save destination window appears, looks like a finder window]


Thanks for all the help! :P
