  1. Use recovery software.

    FYI: If you use clear punctuation and language, you will get more numerous and more helpful responses. I only skimmed your description because it is so difficult to read.
  2. Try running Seagate's diagnostic software on the drive to make sure there are no other problems with it.

    Testdisk is good for recovering lost partitions. http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk
