Switched Wall Receptacle

However, I would like only one side of the receptacle to be HD> operable by the switch. How do I take one of the receptacles off the wall HD> switch?
Probably easier said than done now. You need to add a second wire to the outlets which is live all the time. There is a also link between the top and bottom receptacles which needs to be removed.
