I bought a USB->IDE converter, aiming to pull a bunch of photos off an old
hard drive.

During the data transfer, I bumped the power cord to the hard drive.

I got a bunch of 0 byte files after that. I shut everything down, gave it
half an hour (I know better than to try trouble-shooting while wanting to
throw up... I think that I've lost something on the order of 15K photos :-(.

Tried to re-connect drive, got

[271560.575888] EXT3-fs (dm-0): error: unable to read superblock

so... how fooked am I here?
