  1. Just FYI, If the drive is physically crashed, data recovery software would provide no help. Though, if drive is listed during system booting or can be seen in device manager, that means the drive is logically damaged and using data recovery software could salvage data from the same.

    None of the software’s I’ve tried so far, instead I’d recommend to use Stellar Phoenix Partition Recovery which successfully finds any or all the drive currently listed on your system and helps user to salvage data from the same. RAW Recovery options is the most atoning feature which often performs recovery on severely damaged hard drive.
