Without going into a lot of detail the power pins on my HDD broke, most are bent and 2 have fallen off.
My hdd looks similar to the one shown in this picture;

except the pins on the right, usually used to power the psu, are now broken. Is there any way I could power this up so I am able to exact the data from it? even if it is a temporary fix. I do have an 8 pin connected in the hdd like the picture above shows, am I able to use that for power somehow?
