HDD not being read after running Scandisk

Recommended Posts

Hi

I recently tried running Scandisk on my external HDD (Windows 10) to scan for errors because windows gave me a prompt that it needed fixing.

However, post running Scandisk while the HDD is still being recognized by my laptop I am unable to read/write anything from it.
Also, plugging it into the USB port now causes Windows to hang.

Has someone here dealt with something like this?

Is there a HDD Recovery Software (paid/free) that I can try and use to recover my data from the HDD?

Thanks

If your PC can see the drive you could try 

chkdsk {drive letter} /f

Where {drive letter} is the drive letter like g: or w:
