In the past, I've had success recovering files using Ontrack 
EasyRecoverey software. In your case it wouldn't magically make the 
partition alive again, but let you copy files that hadn't been 
overwritten to another location.
Another option is to send in your HDD for a data recovery service - but 
companies usually charge even more for that.
