Need Help with HDD urgently

Hi guys

just joined here,and long story short.yesterday i Dropped my archive HDD on the floor while it was still attach to my HDD hub,

So that end up with one of the partitions on the hard drive not working and didnt show up

I tried everything

Using Software to using CMD commend to run check disk

SO i end up formatting the partition which now everything is normal.

Does anybody know a good software to recover the folders and name of the files ?

I don't want the actual file recover,because its a 1TB partition would take forever,just need the name of folders and files.

Since you formatted you precisely lost all the filename and directory info, file recovery is still possible but without said info.

I think the lesson from this story is that SSDs are the future. and Im pretty sure that when you format a hard drive it physically erases all of the data that was writen on it, and thats why formating hard drives take really long. Unlike SSDs which when you format them they dont erase the data (because SSDs cant really delete data) they just act like the data that was on it isnt a thing and write over it.

A default quick format does not take long nor erase data.

Actually you misspoke,because its the SDD that has no mechanical disk to write on it so when its die its dead completely

but they die much less often

You'd most likely never hit that "life span" from its actual rating. Its more common that HDD drives die since it has moving parts, rather than an SSD dying from too much writing. Also in my experience from other flash memory (SD and USB Flash drives), they don't just die and you can't access it anymore, they don't allow you to write to the disk anymore, but you can still access the old data (although what killed it was from the constant writing/formatting I did since it was used in a homebrewed 3DS, and so they could die differently).
