  1. There are a lot of threads with a lot of tools. I usually refer people to this list:
    http://www.tomsguide.com/us/pictures-story/332-free-data-recovery-backup-restore.html
    or this: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/267620-32-best-data-recovery-tools

    First, look in the Device Manager. Does the disk show up? Try it in another machine. The enclosure may be the problem; do you have the skills to remove the drive and connect it directly in a tower PC if it comes to that?
  2. Normally, the logically corrupted hard disk is not difficult to fix.
    To recover your data, you need a free hard disk recovery tool:

    To fix this hard disk, you need to format it after the recovery stuff:
    Right click “My Computer” =>Select “Manage”=> Choose “Disk Management” => Right click your drive on the list => format it.
