[SOLVED] Blinking Red Light (YLOD)

According to Sony Service Center my system needs to be sent in to be repaired. Because of this all data on the Hard Drive will be lost.

Is there any way to recover data from a "dead" PS3. I understand that this will void my opportunity to have Sony Repair it. However, this is the second time I've had to send my system in for repairs and the cost is now $180.

If I can recover the data I'd likely just buy a new system, and then load the old data onto it.

Or just buy a new HD and format it in the orginal system then load recovered data after the fact. I'll consider this option because I'll lose backward compatibilty if I abandon this system which is an 80g console.

Any advice or direction would be most appreciated.
