Do this : chkdsk X: /f/r (X is the drive letter, yours may be different)

Do this for both partitions, each at a time.

Did you plugin the external HDD before running the command ? And what is not helping ? Just give me some details. Or try the disk on another system. Or change the USB cable, sometimes it works.

Try plugging and unplugging the drive for several times, sometime it also helps.
