hard drive image errors at 75% data corrupt ?

Hi all, tried to back up my amiga hard drive, it booted up but reported missing files, all whdload games are still there but cant load them because of lack of ram, I cant mount the image files because I dont have a rom file but basically the drive wasn't full around 40 % of the drive had data and it wont go past 75 % do you think I can recover many of my whdload installed games ? or do you think the chances are slim and just move on and buy a cf card with workbench and games installed ? I was planning on reinstalling on a blank card with a classic wb lite. also does amiga forever value with the 1.3 rom contain enough for me to mount this image and try and get the games off or would I need a v2 or 3 rom to see the contents of the image.

If it's only whdload installs that you need, then those are rather easily available online. Naturally any saved games would be lost.

Apart from that, it's dd_rescue and patience I'm afraid.
