Hello Mate,

I’ll recommend you to use Recuva or Photorec, those are free data recovery software. Otherwise you will need professional data recovery to retrieve your data.

After you complete that process you will need to format your drive in order to make the unit fully operational again, you are dealing with a corrupted file system.
