Data. Recovery from lost partition of a hard drive after being dropped

My external hard drive has dropped on the floor and isn't working. i tried scanning it with several data recovery softwares. At first they showed some files and were able to recover some of them, then the recovery would suddenly stop and now they can't detect any files from the scan but can detect a lost partition.
Please help me I need to recover really important data on the hard drive.

  1. You need to be aware that it is probably hone. Was it a hard floor? it's likely you've severely damaged the HDD. You could try freezing it, that has been known to help, but you might need to send it to a recovery service, which will be expensive, very expensive.
