What broke? Can you provide pics? But really, the chance of data loss should be low if you just leave it alone and fix it when you are given instructions.

How about buy a new sata cable and plug it back in? A pic might help if that is not the case...

If the pins are still there, make a shim, a little piece of plastic or paper and put it in between the two rows of pins and nudge the cable onto it to secure it.

The worse case is having to pay for recovery, but you shouldn't lose and data.

oh crap :S its basically just a track to guide the pins from both the cable and hd together and secure them, so as long as the pins all there you should be fine.

On a side note i dont think it would be too outrageously expensive to recover the data. And more than worth the money by the sounds of it. I've lost a full HD before. It sucks :S
