✔ Best Answer
Download Recuva from the link, it is free, and see if it can get your data back. If you format the drive you will pretty much ensure nothing is recovered, so I would attempt recovery first. Here are 2 free programs to try that work well depending on type of damage. In your case the file system on the drive has become corrupt and unreadable.
