If the drive was powered and spinning at the time, you can either forget it and learn a lesson or pay big money to a professional data recovery firm.
If it wasn't powered or spinning, you *might* be (very) lucky and get away with a new housing.
Thank you for your quick reply... it was plugged in and working when I moved my laptop forgetting that I had placed the eternal behind and it was pushed off a low coffee table to the floor. (Carpet if that even matters at this stage....) I guess I will get quote but it looks like I will be saying goodbye to 9 years worth of personal and work stuff. Sweden is so expensive for anything that I expect this will be too costly for me too afford!
Thank you again for your help!
