Re: external hard drive help

What the others say; probably irrecoverable, especially now you've opened it.

I hope you have a backup.

Data can be lost through hardware error, software error or user error. You can reduce the risk and mitigate the damage (e.g. with backups), but sooner or later it will happen.

If anyone tells you it hasn't happened to them, they are very young or very lucky. Or lying.
