I had dropped my Toshiba external hard drive 1tb accidently on the cement floor. Now I'm unable to access it in the computer. It take a few seconds longer than usual to detect the drive and it needs to be reformat to use it. Will it be usable again after it's being reformatted? I need to retrieve the data from the hard drive before reformatting it. How can I do that?

To recover the files, you might try the freezer method.
If you're willing to pay enough, you can use services like these.
In any case, the drive may no longer be usable.
