I would imagine I'd have heeded the graphic warning message generated by S.M.A.R.T... and backed up all my files, then run Spinpoint on the drive, or simply replaced it...

There is an old trick of placing a dying hard drive into a deep freeze overnight, which can enable some recovery of data the next morning - but that really only works for what are essentially mechanical errors and your drive may have had different issues
