Question about Computers & Internet
No way but to replace the unit. Must get help to recover the data/files present in the hard disk by using a recovery program.
Check for bad sectors, and unless with the available good sections a partition can be done to make the hard disk work , you will need a replacement.

Seagate Extended Capacity Manager lets your operating system
support large size discs with MBR partition style, so then you are able to use
the space beyond 2 TB: this free space will be recognized as a separate disc,
and will be accessible by your operating systems and applications as if it was a
regular physical hard disc.
Seagate Extended Capacity Manager wizard will display all hard
discs larger than 2 TB (unallocated or with MBR partition style). You can see,
which disc space is recognized and allocated by Windows - this space is called
Native Capacity in the wizard.
The space beyond 2 TB is displayed as Extended Capacity Zone. You can enable Extended Capacity Discs, and once it is done, this space
will be visible by the operating system and ready for disc management
Click Allocate space to see the
possible disc space allocation in the next step.
After clicking Apply changes now
button, the Extended Capacity Discs will be emulated on your physical disc. In
case your physical disc is larger than 4 TB and the host operating system does
not support a GPT partition layout, there will be several Extended Capacity
Note these Extended Capacity Discs are not bootable, and most
properties will be the same as a physical disc's.
After allocating the space, you may temporary switch off
Extended Capacity Discs by clicking the corresponding option. This will make
Extended Capacity Discs invisible for Windows Disc Management tools, though the
disc space will remain allocated.
To disable Extended Capacity Discs, click Remove partitions from Extended Capacity Zone and then click Apply changes now button in the next step: these discs will be removed from your system, and as a result - the disc space beyond 2 TB will become inaccessible
