you reinstall from your uncorrupted backups.

Corrupted means the data has become messed up. There is nothing the system can do now to get valid data out.

A damaged drive can often be sent out for data recovery (expensive) but for corruption there is not much that can be done. Sorry.

it may sound silly. But I had the same problem once, I could not retrieve anydata from the Hard Drive. I put it into the freezer for the night, as a friend told me, and in the morning I could access to the hard drive and save everything on another hdd.

I don't want you to destroy a hard drive if you find any other solution. However, it worked for me.. I dared to try only because I did not know what else I could do.

Hope it might be helpful.
