This is not a RAID setup is it? I am not familiar with the Easeus Utility unless it is the Data Recovery Software that scans the disk.

 

One thing to try is download Partition Wizard. Scan the disk using the Partition Recovery Wizard. Use Quick Scan on the full disk. On any partition it finds double click it. Do you see your files?

What onscreen error messages do you get regarding this?

 

Is THIS the EaseUS program you used?

What is shown for the drive in Disk Management? Does it say the drive is RAW or offline?

The disk has failed and I'm afraid the only way you will get data from this disk is by using a professional data recovery service. It would depend on how much this data is worth to you as the recovery, if it is even possible, is not cheap, form $800 and up. One of the better services is DriveSavers. They do provide free quotes.

If it can be done zero wipe the disk quick using Partition Wizard. Create a primary partition and format it NTFS.

 

After creating the partiiton, if it's even possible, run a disk diagnostic using Seatools for Windows. Run the short and long tests. It will work for the Hitachi. I have a feeling the drive cannot be recovered.

I believe that because the disk is marked bad disk as shown in your post #7 image. There is no communication between the disk and OS.

Not that I know of. You may have a chance using Parted Magic which is part of UBCD. It's linux based. Boot the UBCD disk and select Parted Magic. On the Desktop is an option to do a SecureErase. It will be called Erase Disk on the desktop. Make absolutely sure you are working with the correct disk.

 

https://partedmagic.com/secure-erase/

 

You may not have all the options in the above link as the Parted Magic version in UBCD is the last free version. The current version is $9.
