Hello,

If you're lucky the damage is only in the enclosure circuitry, take the drive to your local PC shop and ask the techs to test the HDD inside in a new enclosure. If it works you can simply buy the new enclosure and be on your way. If it fails the failure is in the HDD itself and you will require the help of a pro. If you need a pro, reply with your location(Country, State and City) and I can direct you to a nearby facility that will be able to assist you with data recovery.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris
