Both, uncorrectable errors in dmesg, and smartctl reports it as failing.

We were using 1.0.4, so updated to 1.0.7 today. No luck tough. Computer
locks up completly at
certain PE's.
Any clues how i can recover any data from it ? As it complains now, of
missing inodes when i mount it and try to accesss it.
So i cant really do anything. I guess those was moved from the broken
harddisk to the new one, but never got updated
because the computer locked up.
