    If you get that, you'd better have an industrial strength clean room, or enough money to afford a data recovery place with one ($1000 or so), because the drive heads are trashed and you now have a paperweight. The data may still be there, but one would have to take the disk platters out and put them into a new drive shell - not something you can do at home.

    Back up your data regularly.
