Data recovery is possible only if the circuit is working.

Welcome to the wonderful world of windows disk size limitations.
What you are running into is the Windows 137GB Capacity Barrier AKA the 48-bit Logical Block Addressing Support for ATA (IDE), Serial ATA or ATAPI disc drives.
In English this means windows will only “acknowledge” between 127 and 137 Gig of a disk drive without some updates.
In most cases after he latest Service Packs are installed, any additional gigabytes will show up as unallocated space on the drive and you can create a second partition with the Windows disk management tools.Unfortunately this will mean that you have 2 partitions on the drive (if you placed your os on the drive or partitioned it before the updates were installed.).
If this is a secondary drive (in other words your OS is on a different disk drive), install all of the system updates first, you should then be able to format the entire drive as one partition.
That depends on the type of HD you have...Mine is a Maxtor 3 1/2" ATA 60 gig...On Maxtor's web site you can print the jumper settings for the type and style of the the HD you have...A side note on Maxtor's ATA HD's, the jumper setting for 'Master' on all styles would be the last VERTICAL pin setting on the LEFT.
I'm sure if you have another type (Seagate,etc.) they will have setting's on their web-site.
Don't worry if you get it wrong you won't damage the HD, it just won't work.
Hope this helps!
If one of the jumpers shorts two pins and the other jumper is a single pin short, remove the two pin jumper. The single pin jumper should be located on the pin at the far upper right corner. should be set as a slave at that point.
