Default HDD problem

I usually blab, so i'll keep it short and simple..
Well, i was stupid enough to plug in a 2nd harddrive without turning off my computer and i think i shorted out my first (main) harddrive.

Is there anything i can do to revive this harddrive, it had everything i needed on it, lol.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
