Recently My laptop fell and I thouight my HDD was destroyed. I took out the HDD and plugged it into an external case(Hornetter). I was shocked to see all my data files were on there and working, I could view everything, like a giant USB. Today I plug it in, it makes the little noise signaling it's been recognized but no window pops up. It doesn't show up in my computer and when I unplug it, a window pops up and says I need to format the disk. A lot of stuff on this HDD i cannot just redownload or get back, can someone please help?
P.S. I went to device manager and I saw no flags or exclamation marks or anything out of the ordinary.
