x25-m 160gb G2 dead - smart B8 and fails boot.

Just as I was sitting doing my taxes (vat) I got a SMART alert: B8 End to End error Detection Count. Drive is going to fail.

I hurried up and finished it, but did not have any means of backup at hand (not with this short warning!).

I closed down the computer and tried to reboot - and right enough, it failed.

I used the win7 repair function. It worked a bit, but then said that the HD was dead, sorry.

So. Any experience with this? Any way of getting my data off the drive? How many loops must I jump to get a new drive?

And - googling for this error I find A LOT of other posts...

Are the 160gb G2's simply brooken? Should I go back to spinners instead of SSD's?
