That you are not using the Safely Remove Option in Windows to disconnect the external Drive here and the Partition Tables have been corrupted because the drive is being incorrectly shut down.

If you just want to use this drive format it again and it will work till the Partitions Tables gets corrupted again because the unit is not being shut down correctly.

If you need to recover the Data and it is Important you should send it to a Specialist Data Recovery House and let them recover it. If you mess with the drive you run the risk of permanently deleting Data and making the recovery several times more expensive because of your actions.

However if it would just be Nice to recover the Data you need to run a Data Recovery Application that can rebuild the Partition Tables as this is the fastest but if you have lots of time available you can attempt any of these to recover your Data.

There are a whole lot of different programs available
Here is a short list of the better ones

While the last 2 are from the same company they are very different products. Win Hex should only be considered foe use by someone who knows Hex Inside Out while Davory is a great cheap General Purpose Application.

Personally I prefer the On Track Option but it's anything but cheap. However because I use this type of software a lot it's paid for itself many times over by now, for a cheaper option Spin Rite from Gibson Research or Stella have both very good reputations by other TR members.
