My book essential

Tried to access MY BOOK ESSENTIAL (1tb).  Several backups were on it.  Windows says its not formatted.  Tried PROPERTIES but Windows says the same thing.  Tried using SMARTWARE but no help there.  Is there a preferred way to try to recover the data on this drive?  Any help would be appreciated.


How is the drive showing under disk management?
