I would have used any of those if I had the opportunity, but as it is, the drive is fried. Tried several stuff before doing this post, you can count on that. Computer doesn't boot up if drive is plugged in. Disc Manager detects it as a 3.86 GiB drive, a bit less than the 2.72 TiB it should show (sarcasm), and as uninitialized.
I'm getting a live CD with anything capable of doing a raw read and getting the first 100 MiB of the disc if possible, I will analyze the dump because honestly the only thing I'd like to recover is the list of files inside two folders, nothing else.
Actually having one third of space less suddenly is not that bad, but I miss it. I don't think I'll be able to afford anything any time soon.
Thanks for the suggestions anyway and thanks to Andrew for the song too.
Wound up, can't sleep, can't do anything right, little honey / Oh, since I set my eyes on you. / I tell you the truth.
I can't get it right / Get it right / Since I met you...
