You can attempt to run data recovery software on the drive. Here is a link to a free one;

Data you do not backup is data you do not care about. ALL drives fail; it is only a question of when your drive will fail. With a backup of the important files, it is a no brainer to delete all partitions and create/format then restore the backup. Done.
