Below is the recovery log, as I see it I'm copying it and pasting it into a txt file for me to document.  The first message is at the bottom and the newest one is at the top.  Note the error count is increasing while the error bytes is decreasing and the ipos is increasing with each spot it's trying to recopy.  After I run this, I may try it again & if it still has errors, I may turn the drive upside down or sideways.

hmm hard to test over here.  I could never get anything to count down. 
But keep us posted with what it does
