Leaving the drive off overnight "fixed it" enough that I am able to get
some of the data off. It will be a couple hours before I know how much,
but I did manage to get all the ssh keys, project descriptions, and
project statistics. I'm now working on the actual data just in case
there is one of the trees, such as the ppc trees, that we can't find

The drive has bad blocks and when it hits them it goes into retry la la land,
so I won't know which data is bad until I hit the bad blocks.
