I use a program called fastcopy (http://ipmsg.org/tools/fastcopy.html.en), it can do crc verify you can also pause resume / slow it down..etc

your drive is running in PIO due to excesive UDMA errors, change the SATA cable and uninstall the SATA driver then reinstall it to reset it to UDMA

Squall:
no its not and as I said tried on DOS versions of Acronis and Ghost [forgot to say it was DOS versions up there] and said drive has a smart status BAD warning upon boot
hyakki:
I was not talking about pause and resume I am talking about is something like shutdown my PC now and then resume where it remembers the last sector it was reading and continue on from there again without the need start it all up from the beginning I heard that it was possible ubuntu just wishing there was a windows or DOS based program that has similar features

the most annoying thing was this happened without warning an Hour before that the very same drive had Smart status good on it then I opened a file to do some editing and it said file was unreadable so I did a checkdisk after two hours and a lot of errors and finishing the check I shut it down then morning came and Viola drive was smart status bad and slow reading good thing its all just files and not my OS[OS was on a seperate Drive] otherwise I would be screwed and unable to use my PC

I'm not aware of any program that can resume backup after a shutdown, (why would you risk shutting down a failing drive? I would get any data off while you can with whatever works or atleast the most important files.)

Sometimes turning the drive upside down can help it read better.

Bad ram and bad cables can cause smart to report false events to you might want to make sure nothing is overclocked on your system, though if it was working fine before I doubt that's the problem.

that write error rate is massive, what about Raw Read errors?

Hyakki makes a good point, something as little as dry solder could cause this to occur so laying the drive upside down might help.

Believe me I already did that replacing the SATA cables turned it upside down the works but the highest transfer rate I could get is .6 mbps I even tried to put it in a USB docking station didn't change a thing and believe me I am leeching files of it for the last 5hours and all I got is roughly 11-12gigs of data out of 450-460g's worth of files believe me that most of them are very important my daily, weekly and yearly reports are there, list of current customers, list of all Data across several servers, list of most recent back up weve got, the works
I could already see my Supervisors Ugly Mug steaming in anger when he finds we are gonna need a 9000-15000peso worth of Professional Data Recovery Service and I am going Up there now to say it to his face wish me luck

put the new drive in then use testdisk from here http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk

it came in very handy for me when windows refused to fix the partition tables, you can read off the entire contents of the drive.
