What do you mean exactly? Is bitlocker on it? By the looks of things it's not since you said it "raw" ?

No this is not in Windows 7 Bit Locker mode, in property it says there is zero data, when I run a sector scan it picks up 5 bad sectors, it also gives me a indication that it's in the raw data mode. The drive is about 95% full but reads zero data, no files are visible and the drive is not opening it says "The volume does not contain arecognized file system".
