Test with a different cord and a different computer. If that does not help, try running a checkdisk with the fix options on the drive, I've seen several posters that said that fixed the issues.

If you had clouds storage, you need to contact the vendor, even if someone deleted your files, they have backups.

Do you hear clicking noises coming from the hard drive when it is powered on?

Try this hard drive on another computer? How is it shown on another computer? Have you tested it with chkdsk prompt?
As to your drive data, try to access them by using some drive data recovery software, like:

Just make drive data backups on several places in the future.
