Usually, if I need to retrieve data from damaged partition, I do the following:
1. dd if=/dev/sdX of=image.dd
2. losetup and/or mount
3. testdisk on image

Now I have a drive with a 1Tb capacity and it quite huge to create a copy, especially with taking into account that partition has a lot of bad bloks. It may take a few days. So I wondering, is there any other way to mount this damaged partition?
Partitions table seems OK: I can access the first and the second partition, but I need access to the third one.

Code:
Disk /dev/sda: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders, total 1953525168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x3176ea40

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *        2048      206847      102400    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda2          206848   122882047    61337600    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda3       122882048  1953519615   915318784    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
