I formatted my encrypted hard disk of 500 GB by mistake for 2 to 3 seconds.Now, it is not opening. Instead it says---" Disk structure is corrupted and unreadable". What should i do open it?

if the drive partition was encrypted and the filesystem is decrypted in software you may be able to run a recovery program over the decrypted but partially formatted filesystem and see if you can recover it.

If the drive partition was unencrypted and contained a filesystem with encrypted contents then unfortunately it is almost guaranteed to be unrecoverable.
