Cannot access Iomega prestige external hard disk after system format

Hi everyone.. I am using iomega prestige portable hard drive superspeed USB 3.0. and it is encrypted( it will ask for password when we connect it to the laptop) and I am using HP pavilion DV6 6C65 laptop. The hard drive worked fine until yesterday. The laptop had some audio issue and I took it to HP service center and they formatted the laptop. Now when I connect the external hard drive to laptop, I can see the iomegaencryptionsetup.exe file, but when I open this file it is not asking me password, instead it is opening application settings window everytime. I have important data in it. Can anyone help me solving this issue. Thank you.
