Portable hard drive - data gone!

Specs: N/A

I have had a portable hard drive (plug in and play) which has worked fine for about a year and a half. When i plugged it in today, all the data stored here has gone! Help!

Hard drive is a toshiba mk4032gax. I have tried restarting the laptop, using different USB's to plug it in and plugging it into another laptop none of which worked.

The drive shows up under my computer but there are no files in it! Device manager says it can see the device and is not showing any issues.

I can hear the hard drive start to 'spin' when i plug it in but it stops after a few seconds...

I would recommend Fields Data Recovery. They were quick and professional, a painless experience.
