MyBook initializing error- cannot first aid / repair

I have plugged the drive in to the USB and it comes up with this error. When I click to go further the only option appears to reformat the drive as any option to repair etc is greyed out. Any other way to get the drive functional ? It has data on it that I would like to retain Mike

Try using Recuva or TestDisk to restore the files

after that you can reformat
