Need help! Broke hard drive sata pins

Hey, so I need some help. One of my hard drives just broke their sata pin connector. The little plastic bit that allows the connection. I tried putting it together with no luck even breaking one if not two of the sata pins and don't know what to do. Is there a way to recover what I had on it or somehow fix it? I see there is another port right next to it and don't know if that can be used?

    I once dealt with a situation like this by using modeling clay to build a support under the wires (took forever to get it right), it worked for long enough to get the data off. at the end of the day the question is do you have a backup? because the really only solid option is to find an identical drive and try a PCB swap.
