Most failed drives can be recovered. There are companies that specialze in this - do a Google search. It will probably cost you several hundred dollars for a quality service.

Many will evaluate the drive for free.

You may have less hope than most, because of the overheating. Hopefully, it is just an electronics failure, though.

The most typical drive failure is bearing failure. To recover, they remove the disks and install them in another drive. The disks then typically read just fine.

This would, of course, work for a case of failure of the drive electronics as well.

Not smart! Bet it was a SATA HD.

I had a corrupt SATA RAID and disk failure once. Not good, and you can't always get your data back. Since then I've always been complely paranoid about backing things up.
