  1. there are two types of drive failure: logical and mechanical.
    if you're suffering from logical drive failure you could recover files with recovery software (such as recovermyfiles). it'll cost $$ and take time.
    if you're suffering from mechanical failure (typically identified by the drive making a noticable clicking noise) then you're probably SOL. you could take it to recovery specialists, but that'll cost $$$$$$ and there's no guarantee of anything being recovered.

    if and after you recover what you can, do two things: 1) STOP using that drive 2) START backing up your data!

  3. too late now. you need to be backing up your data BEFORE anything goes wrong.
    data backup is insurance against data loss, not a cure for it.
