First Thing you need to do is Download LinuxMint
Go for the Live DVD 32-bit (if you know you have a 64-bit then go for that otherwise go for 32-bit to be safe).
Remove the Memory Card and don't use it at all. If you have a Card reader that would be awesome. Eitherway take it out and don't touch it.
Once you have Downloaded the file burn it to a DVD.
You are ready to start but make sure you don't need the computer for the whole day.
Now Insert the DVD into the Computer and Reboot.
Don't worry it will take forever to load. (I mean 10 to 15 mins).
Once loaded it may ask if you wish to install or test. Select test.
Then after a few more minutes it will Load the Linux OS on your Machine (It is not installed it is just a virtual OS running of your RAM, it will feel slow because it is not really installed)
Make sure the computer is connected to the Internet, it will detect all drivers automatically (well usually).
On the bottom Right there will be Connection manager.
From Here goto Menu on the bottom Left and click on Terminal.
It will open a White window with a quote.
Type "Sudo apt-get install gddrescue" without quotes and Press Enter.
It will will install the Rescue program.
Now Hook up your Card either by Card Reader (Recommended) or by the Phone.
Now in terminal type "sudo apt-get install gparted" and Press Enter wait for it get done and goto Menu and in the search bar type gparted and click the resulting Gparted on the Top.
Once it Loads on the top Right it will say /dev/s?? Select the arrow to bring the drop down list.
Note down the Address (/dev/s??) for the Capacity that matches your memory Card
From now on this Address is Reffered to as MCAdd
Write down the Address of your C: Drive as well.
Please note that it is showing your actual Storage bytes unlike Windows, so there may be a few MB/GB missing. This will be Reffred to CAdd
Now go back to your Terminal Window and type:
"sudo ddrescue -r 3 MCAdd CAdd"
It should be looking something like this:
sudo ddrescue -r 3 /dev/sdc /dev/sdb
Now let it do it's magic.
You can use the system while it's doing this but I don't recommend it, I am only mentioning it is if it's an emergency then you can use firefox to surf the net. Once again highy not recommended as it will slow down the process of recovery further.
At the End of the Day watch how much has been recovered and if it matches the amount you need.
Further Instructions once your done.
