1. Dont worry! It is not a big deal. Generally speaking, you should format your drive to make it work well again, but for the safe of your files, youd better apply a recovery program to restore them all firstly, such as iCare Data Recovery Free, Recuva, Vimx partition Recovery and Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free.
If you wanna know the further information about the recovery program, or deirectely download the freeware, you could come to

2. I Have to emphasize one thing that you should restore your data at first and then format the drive, for the format may damage the original data again, which would be bad for your data recovery.
