Windows 7: HDD not recognized after Scan-Disk

HDD not recognized after Scan-Disk

Hello everyone.

I have a WD element 1TB HDD, and it was working fine until one file got corrupted due to power loss, but no big deal.

The real problem started when I used the scan disk option in Windows. Using it made a disaster!
The HDD is no longer recognized by windows. I open Disk management and it says the HDD is not initialized!
I tried using R-studio recovery, and the only thing I can see about the HDD is "WD", no other info available and no options are doable.

I had 600gb of personal films on that thing!

And ideas, please don't hesitate!

Thank you so much in advance.
