That drive is toast.
You will need to use the free demo version of Disk Scavenger. It will scan the disk an give indication of how much can be recovered. If it can it will tell you how much. Then you decide if it's worth $49 to actually do the recovery.
If there is physical disk damage, then you will get nothing.
