my passport fell from my desk and now the disk is making a clicking noise

The disk appears on the computer as H: and cannot be opened, the computer gives a messages that suggest to reformat the disk to be abble to use it

I tried recovering my data my GET DATA BACK FOR NTFS, the software is capable of reading and finding all my folders, but its awfully long because it's connected by a USB 2.0 and the disk is clicking

i would like to connect it directly to the motherboard by sata but Western Digital made it a lot harder with that kind of connection pins.

Is there a way to connect it, by some sort of adapter, or opening the disk ( yeah i know the warranty but to that point i don't care, and also please don't bother the specialist option)

Thanks in advance !

Reading, better restoring the data from a damaged disk is slow! That has nothing to do with the connection.
