If Windoze cannot read it then any program you run will not either I guess.
You can but try though
A free download PCInspector.
Download it install it and see what happens
It will ask you to select a source.
Then a destination
then click proceed.
It is is intended to detect accidentally deleted files or a fresh reformat.
But from what you hint at - if the drive is damaged.
Then I guess there is little be be done.
