Cannot access the data

My  Adata HD6500 1Tb hard drive suddenly stopped being recognised . Some time later i could see that it was recognised by Windows Explorer but said that the files inside were 0 bytes each but in overall properties shows that data exists

It is in fat32 format for some reason

I tried to use partition wizard but it wouldn't recognize the drive

Update :Disk usage graph shows that it reaches 100 % at times and immediately shoots down to 0

Cant use Chkdsk because cmd says its raw

Sounds like a defective drive but I'd start by ruling out some simple possibilities. Grab another sata cable and plug it into a different sata port. I've had bad cables cause me all sorts of trouble.

Not a cable problem

If it doesn´t work in another computer either, either the file system is damaged or the disk is broken, or both.

 

You could just format it and see if it recovers, but I doubt it.  When a disk fails, I simply replace it and don´t mess with it.

Then I'd try some data recovery software to see if you can get the data off and replace the drive. Unless you already have a backup then I'd just format, disassemble, steal the neodymium magnets because they're fun, & dump the drive.

If you are concerned with keeping your data you would be best off contacting a data recovery professional in your area.  It could be costly but only you would know what your data is worth...  If, after that you decide it is not worth getting done professionally ONLY then should you try and recover it yourself.
