500GB SATA2 Hard Disk Crashed

Sunday, January 10, 2010
My primary hard disk, a SATA 2 500 GB from Samsung crashed.
Such a disaster. Just yesterday it was showing soft errors in smartctl. Today it refused to wake up.
Even today smartctl can get device information from the HDD.

Can we really rely on a hard disk. This one is not even 1 year old and a latest one.
Though fdisk, sfdisk still shows partition information and layout but PV and VG informations (LVM) does not show up.

I have no idea about such "hard" errors. what to do ?
