How to get back data from a drive that is needed to be formatted?

I have a portable drive that has contained some important files. However, all of sudden, these files become inaccessible. Disconnect it and only received a message saying: “The drive is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?”
But, I cannot format it since I don’t want to lose all the files there. Is there any way to fix this?
