2 days ago a USB 3.0 hard drive was dropped to the ground and stopped working - I can connect it to a computer but it shows me that the drive is failed and all I can do is to format it. I tried several things - opened the drive - everything was ok there, tried it on Ubuntu, Windows 7, Windows 10, put it in freezer for 24 hours - the effect is still the same. I don't care if the drive itself can be rescued - I want only the files. How can I recover them? Do I need any special software? the drive type is samsung ST1000Lm024.
One more thing is that when I opened the Seagate cover, there was a normal laptop drive - Samsung. I checked it on Crystal Disk Info and it showed me that the drive was almost unused (which is not true) and that the file sectors are broken.
I attached screenshot from CrystalDiskInfo and the image of the drive inside.
