  1. The drive has most likely been physically damaged and is now unreadable, for which there is no solution other than to replace it. keeping all your data backed up to another hard drive would have protected your data against loss.

    You can test the drive to see if it has failed, use "SeaTools For Windows": http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/
    Be sure to test it with the Long/Extended test.
