OH Smeg

Damaged I'm betting that it is by turning off the drive incorrectly.

What you need is a Application that can rebuild the Partition like On Tracks Recovery Program which is expensive but effective.

If you have enough use for this application I would suggest that you get yourself a copy as you'll be able to rebuild the drive within a few minutes it's available from here


And you want the Easy Recovery Professional

If you want something cheaper and slower you can use Spin Rite available here


You really should Read The Manual to prevent this from happening as it's very expensive & time consuming to recover from.
