Help on recovering data

I had some important data on HDD. Recently I sold it to another guy. So I copied the data to my brother's laptop. But I don't wanted anyone to access it cause it contains some personal stuff, so I wanted to use Bitlocker but it was too slow encrypt 99 GB data so I Googled for some drive locking software and found Lockmydrive application. So I locked a drive. My brother came and asked me how it works. So when I tried to unlock the drive system didn't responded. So I forced it to restart, then the drive is not accessible. So I used chkdsk now the drive show 5 GB partition only nd I couldn't unlock the drive. It says the drive is not locked. What should I do?
Format the drive and recover?
Can I use system recover?

I need help guys, Those data are very important to me. I learnt my lesson ill keep a backup hereafter. But I need those data :(
