GOBACK screwed a hard drive?

I had a WD800 hd with 2 ntfs parts on it, C and D. I needed more space on the C drive so I got out gparted and fired it up. It said that there was 2.5G of free space at the end of the drive so I decided to move the D part and expand the C part. After I changed the end of the the only part (gee I thought I had 2 partitions) on the drive, that's when the stuff hit the fan. GOBACK generated error 116 and 135 when I tried to start the cd that semantic suggested. I let it try to delete GOBACK from the hd and after waiting about 30 hours of finding the GOBACKIO.BIN file on the #2 drive, there was a power failure and the computer shut down. Now I get SMART errors before the post. Is there any way, preferably with free software of getting ANY data off this thing? If I could just get the address book under Windows Outlook Express I would be ecstatic. The computer this hd came out of is already rebuilt and running. I just need some files off it.
