Good night.

On the Mac two drives, SSD and HDD, on the first system, everything works, the second important data, it "broke". When you turn off and turn on the computer, the drive appears, the files it "includes" and copy the whole thing fails, I get an error and the drive disappears (message about improper eject the disc).

Physically, the drive is split into two - one AFPS, the second HFS (used for Time Mashine system disk). It is likely that the problem is in the past, it's not valuable, but to remove his fear.

If it is to climb (APFS), then the access is very slow. Folder opens long.

Standard Disk utility finds errors but does not fix them, I tried "Disk Drill" also with no result - files does not find, after some operating time the disk crashes. Tried using the console to copy the folders from the package - same result.

460 GB of data - Photos, videos (located in your Photo). The backup data is there, but very old, need it last.

I know that in theory you can remove the drives and format that would get rid of the errors, and then try to recover the data but not sure this will work with APFS disk, do not want to risk.

What else to try? The pictures are very sorry, I have just at this time the daughter was born, there are all her photos up to 2 years. the computer almost didn't fit all the time, so this mess happened. Relying on the reliability of poppies(

It is good that you wrote here before you listen to this "good advice".
In any case, so don't do it! Any write operation (and formatting them implies) destroying data (at least partially) and either reduce the chances of recovery as a whole, or impair the possible result.

Given the fact that the files you are not formally deleted, ie there is a chance that FS is intact, you can use R. seiver, he is free and able to read data from APFS. But that drive will need to be removed and connect to a machine with Windows:

However, judging by the described your symptoms, I would really think hard about whether or not to do it. I would guess that the drive is starting to fail and any attempts to work with it in any programs may worsen the situation.

The optimum advice would be to stop using the drive, remove it and contact the company professionally engaged in only data recovery. In normal companies free diagnostics and no obligation.
A preliminary assessment of the company with the help of this article: recovery data.Russia

If however, you want to take the risk, you can spend it yourself diagnostics using R. tester', but it also need Windows:

PS
You didn't mention what kind of Mac you're using, so just in case, make sure that you have not used the Fusion drive. If improperly separation effects usually are sad, we regularly encounter them:

Strange question.
In the tags it says about data recovery, the question about the recovery disk. The concept is mutually exclusive, so it is unclear what you need?
Data to recover and throw the disc in the trash?
To restore the disk destroying all data on it?

Standard Disk utility finds errors but corrects them,
Standard disk utility restore file system.
If you need to recover data - it is in any case can not run, she has another task.
If you need to recover the disk utility will not help.

I know that in theory you can remove the drives and format that would get rid of the errors, and then try to recover the data but not sure this will work with APFS disk
Work! what could be doubt.
1)Format - this destroyed file system.
2)Then can try to recover the data - a fascinating process.
Some sometimes you even get something to restore.

The best conditions for recovery of data the company data recovery.
If the data is so expensive, not worth the risk of self-recovery.
