You unplugged it when data was still written on it so it was corrupted. Some files are still recoverable so use

Perhaps if the HDD has not been damaged. HDD's can be very delicate , external HDD's can get bumped about at times, rendering them useless. Remove the HDD from the case, using a USB to IDE/SATA Adapter ,or, a computer shop, try to test/read the disk. It can be read, but I'm not sure you want to pay the price it may cost. It can be quite expensive, and requires specialized equipment.

Corrupt or unreadable error message


You can use free softwares such as Pandora Recovery to recover data. I cannot guarantee that it will recover any, but it doesn't hurt to try. There are also a lot of other payware softwares you can try if you think it would help.

File or directory corrupted and unreadable


The directory is like a "table of contents" in a printed textbook.

If a child's crayons have been used to overwrite those pages, making them unreadable, then the table of contents cannot be used to locate the starting page-number of a specific chapter. So, one must read through the whole textbook, page-by-page, looking & trying to recognize the start of a chapter, and then the end of the chapter.

Similarly, there exist "file-recovery" computer software programs that do such "linear" reading of the entire ZIP disk, and trying to reconstruct the "file-structure" that was recorded in the "disk-directory".

Search for "file scavenger" software, and give it a try.
