    Do you mean you need to copy the data that is in the hard disk? If yes then put the hard disk into another computer and pull out the data.

    The methods mentioned elsewhere in this post will work only if the data you are looking to get is not on damaged sectors of the hard drive. If the drive is severely damaged you may have to take it to data recovery specialist. That can get to be pricey and it's not 100% guaranteed.

    If the HDD is totally damaged, then chances are very few to recover data. As you mentioned Windows 7, assuming this is a ntfs partition. Linux has more options to repair damaged media than Windows. If possible, you can insert this damaged HDD in a Linux based system. Install a free toll called testdisk (http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk) and try to recover the same. However you can also try with built-in command like fsck. You cam also try any 3rd party tools for Windows, but as Mr. ToddN2000 said, fully recover may not possible.

    "Our hard disk is damaged in system install."

    What is "damage"? How do you know there is "damage"? What are the symptoms? If we don't anything about the conditions, there are no good answers.

    What was "system install"? Some system installs to disks will make old data practically unrecoverable from that disk.
