If the drive has already failed you are out of luck.

The prime rule of computing is…

Never save anything you don’t want to lose on only one drive!

If it contains something of earth-shattering importance you can send it to a data recovery business and spend a lot of money but that’s about it.

If the drive is acting like it’s going to fail, copy everything on it to another location. Do it a few folders at a time. Don’t try and copy the whole drive at once do the most important things first.
