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
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.
