Since I can see no picture (you can't post pictures on this forum, you have to post a link to your favorite picture sharing site), all I have is that you say it's "corrupted or damaged". That's not enough information to determine if it's something you can (try to!) fix and recover yourself or if it's something you need a specialized data recovery company for.

Please tell all relevant details and remember our old adage: "You only lose what you don't backup" or (in the past sense) "You only lost what you didn't backup". So if you have a backup of the important files, you only lose the unimportant files. And those aren't important.

That pic shows
The hdd is not in the boot order.
The hdd has gone poof/corrupted.

Check the boot order and verify the hdd shows.
Grab a copy of linux puppy and put it on optical.
Boot the disc and let it have a look at that hdd.
If it can find these important files you can copy them out.

This typically is something you can't do yourself. But a data recovery company can, although it can be quite expensive (more than USD 1000 in the USA).
If the cost is more than the value of the data you lost: don't do it.

Probably no other way except having it done. Your link above was to a Russian site, so if you live in Russia indeed, you'll have to find a Russian data recovery company.
