    You are going to have to replace the hard drive. If you don't know how to work on laptops I suggest that you take the Toshiba to a repair center

    10 years! You have to be kidding! If all this is really important to you and you are willing to pay a lot to get it back, a data recovery service may be able to retrieve the data. After this experience, learn proper back up procedures using things like USB flash drives, DVD's and external USB hard drives.They are inexpensive and easy to use
