No software can repair physical damage. Try to remove the drive from enclosure and connect into a working system.

kuwese is suggesting that maybe the enclosure has been damaged and the internal hard drive is still working. That is the best place to start.

Inside you should find a normal hard drive that might be able to be connected to another enclosure or to a computer internally.

If you get the drive to mount and see any files then you may get some back or with the best of luck all of them.Might have to use unstoppable copier or some other tool.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Is the drive spinning or clicking? Put it in the freezer for a few hours, then reconnect it to the comptuer. See if that allows you to access the data.
