Long story short, my new Sony Vaio SR was smashed into pieces. I have about a years worth of data on the harddrive that I need to salvage. The hard drive looks to be intact from what I can tell.. it came out attached to the CD/DVD drive. Is there anything that can be done?

Since it's a 2.5" drive...if it's SATA, I believe that you can attach it directly to another system.

If it's not SATA, then the logical (IMO) way to attach it to another system would be buy/borrow/obtain a USB 2.0 enclosure, put the drive in and see if the files on it can be accessed.
