Recover data from failing hard drive

I have 3 hard drives in my computer case; some month ago, a clicking noise came from the case on startup causing blue screen, and advice on here was to disconnect the hard drive which was trying to boot. That worked fine in that another hard drive already had XP on it and boots properly!

If I wish to extract some data off 'failed' drive how do I set about it? It had several partitions on it so I am hopeful something can be salvaged!

Connect the failing drive, then boot into BIOS. Set the good drive as first boot device.

When restarted, you should be able to drag and drop the files onto another drive.
