Hi Zorky,

Firstly, try to recover the partition to a different drive using this:

Partition Wizard Recovery software

Video : How to perform Partition Recovery with partition magic? Partition Wizard Partition Recovery Video Help.

Then, you will need to format the external and copy the recovered data back again. I suggest running some checks on the external before you use it again.

Regards,
Golden
