Failed hard drive can FKey still be accessed?

After a power outtage my computer's hard drive will not boot and it having to be replaced. Is there any possibility if I hook it up externally to access any documents I was working on, that I can also access the passwords in the F Secure key? It was only for my desktop and not synched with any other device nor a subscription.

Thank you for any suggestions offered.

    If you have free version, you may try these steps:
    - Copy a whole folder C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\F-Secure\Pwmgr from your failing hard drive
    - Download and install KEY to another PC
    - Replace existing folder C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\F-Secure\Pwmgr with the one you have saved previously

    Thank you for your help. Unfortunately the hard drive is completely dead but I will keep your suggestion on file for the next time this happens.
