l have a crushed laptop drive that is partitioned into two.

The C drive is completely unreadable while the secondary drive l can open and read the files but l cant move them from the drive even if l try open and save as for some of them.

Any ideas?

weird ,you should be able to simply right click and do a copy /paste .
try doing a checkdisk on the drive ,right click the drives icon in mycomputer and go to tools and setup the check disk there

And how does that help in recovering data, as the OP asked? It just deletes all the data... Please, read the question that you are 'answering' (I use that word with a fair amount of ironic intent given your posting history so far) and then stop and think whether you can add any help, any value, at all to the thread before you start typing.
