Is it a HDD with a mechanical failure? As in, do you hear the head attempt to move at all on the platter? If that's the cause, you'll need to carefully transfer the plates to another drive first.

If that's not the case and it's just a corrupted table maybe with a few bad sectors, most file recovery software can help with that.

More importantly, I haven't used HDDs in years, but even back then Seagate is what you used when you don't care about reliability. If it's important, remote backups or a RAID. If it's not important, move on with life. Smile | :)
