Opening a new post is probably a good idea; it makes it more obvious, plus you can each specify what your OS and version is, plus the exact wording of any error messages.
Personally, from the lack of responses I see here in most areas, I'd say contacting tech support for this one might be the best path for both of you. That 85% must be a meaningful number since each of you came up with it separately.
Sorry I can't help,

I downloaded Active@ Disk Image. It was able to copy the disk successfully, although when it came to certain areas of the disk, presumably the bad blocks, it slowed down so much that I thought it had stopped working. It did finish, taking about 2 hours for a 60 GB hard drive. Without the errors it would have taken much less time.
Be aware that even though one can download Active@ software free for a 21 day trial, the image it creates is .adi, (Active data image)which means, I assume, that to restore you will need to have purchased the Active@ software.
