I’ve just had my second laptop hard drive die on me in the last year. Of course the difference is that this time I’ve got a Time Machine backup from about 30 hours prior to the death and a bootable partition on the external drive as well. All the same, this is a real pain. If I don’t respond to email in the next few days that’s why.
