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".

Recovering data from a hard drive
My secondary hard drive recently stopped reading on me, though it seems like it still has the data on it (and it still spins, I can hear it turn on). For a while it seemed that putting it in the freezer for a while would allow me about twenty minutes or so of time to copy data (which I got some...
