Your best bet is to purchase some hard drive recovery software. Many companies offer recovery software but the only one I have ever tried is Stellar Phoenix.

Undoubtedly, you can't access the data without formatting everything on the drive. Though, it would be great if you could provide few more details about the tool you've used to protect your external hard disk. Later we'll check the encryption scheme provided by the encryption software and will see if we can assist anything to brake password.

In different scenario, carefully try the recommended software by TrainableMan and make sure that you're not using the same external hard disk to save another data. Doing so will simply overwrite everything and makes your data non recoverable.

Good Luck!!

Ok, if your game, download a "Live Linux" CD/DVD. You will be able to boot off the CD/DVD and it usually auto mounts NTFS partitions ( your hard drive and the external drive). Then just copy between the two drives.
That would be the cheapest way I can think of.

External hard disk recovery is best performed by using Remo Recover. This repair software is one of the most widely used and gives amazing results at the end.

Even with recovery software what you may get back is simply encrypted files. The whole point of encryption is to keep the files safe. It wouldn't be very safe if it was easy to recover without the password.
