Yet another accident

This time I am ok, but my 400GB external HDD is gone and along with it I lost all the photographs that I took in the last two year and the videos including meetthegimp and inkscape and bijra related videos. I somehow managed to kick it while it was connected to the system. It fell from 1 and half feet above the ground.

From /var/log/messages

Right now I am singing in joy(?). Is there any chance that I can recover the data ?
