There is no way to recover the data. the drive is destroyed and will need to be replaced.

Hi Karel,

Clicking sound from the hard drive indicates a mechanical issue. In these cases the drive can not function normally, retrieving the information is very hard and could be done with the help of a data recovery company.
Opening the drive damages the internal parts, because they require a special environment to function properly. Sadly, since you have opened the hard drive, retrieving the data may be impossible. Contact some data recovery company to get some suggestions.

Hope this helps
