You could slave it to another computer either internally or by using a USB external drive enclosure.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

In the future I suggest you maintain at least 2 copies of any personal data. All hard drives do eventually fail. They are also, fried by lightning, stolen, corrupted by viruses, etc. You get the picture?

You can buy an external USB adapter that can be used over and over. See the links below.

You can connect ANY 2.5", 3.5" or 5.25 hard or optical drive, SATA or IDE with one of the above devices. Very useful.
