If there is essential data on there that must be recovered, the first thing
to do is heed the following advice:
QUIT PICKING AT IT, YOU WILL ONLY MAKE IT WORSE!
Any attempt to recover data from the drive could wind up permanently making
it unrecoverable by any means including professional recovery. It may
already be too late since you've already tried to install and write data to
A professional drive recovery service may be able to recover the data but it
will be very expensive and will take some time. Google "hard drive
recovery" for a number of companies that offer this service.
