Is there another rescue software ??

Firstly, copy the entire disk to another one of the same or larger
size by booting from a live distro such as sysrecuecd and using dd
(e.g. dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb).

Check out ddrescue as a replacement for dd, too. I've had luck with it
when some files were partially corrupted, but it's been years since I
used it.
