    Hi @WiktorWdowiak

    You haven't answered all my questions.

    1. If it is inside an enclosure please mention the manufacturer and model number of the enclosure.
    2. With the drive in that enclosure plugged into that HP 250 G6 laptop was any data accessible before and if yes when was it?

    When you wanted to use that 500GB disk as a data drive, why didn't you delete all partitions in it and format it?

    You have another Windows 7 PC. Please plug in the external in it and post the Partition Wizard screenshot.
    Sorry that I didn't answered your reply for so long!
    1. Gembird 2,5" Hard drive enclosure, (I think that this is model number) P/N EE2-U2S-5
    (Note: Enclosure works perfectly fine with other drives)
    2. Yes, it was, and data was accesible. It was last accessible at 11.06.2021

    I'm installing MiniTool Partition Wizard on my mom's Windows 7 computer, give me a sec :)

    I don't know if the previous message got deleted, or it's just not displaying for me, but yeah, here are informationss, and screenshot

    1. Gembird 2.5" Hard drive enclosure, (I think that this is the model number) P/N EE2-U2S-5

    2. Yes, it was, and data was accessible. Last time that I've seen my data was at 11.06.2021

    I did not deleted all partitions, because it was drive that was previously in my laptop, which means that it have got my old data, and I don't have any way to backup important data :/

    I installed MiniTool Partition Wizard on my mom's Windows 7 laptop, and this is what shows in program:
    The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable. - Error-unknown.png

    (Note: When I connect drive to Windows 7 laptop, it shows that after reseting drive it will work, which I know that's true, but I don't want to lose any data :/)

    Yes, if you format the drive you will lose all data.

    OK, The PW screenshot is exactly the same as with Windows 10. Both your RAW partitions show the file system as NTFS in PW.. So what exactly has gone wrong I am unable to decipher.

    You can now release your mom's PC and get back to your Windows 10 laptop.

    1. Right now in PW, right click on the two partitions > explore and check whether it shows your files. Post a screenshot of what the resulting Partition Explorer Windows show. If instead you get any error message post that error message

    2. Download and install the free trial version of GetDataback Pro.Data Recovery Software Downloads Read all the documentation on how to use it. Let it find your drives. Click on your faulty drive and it should show all the partition icons. Click on each partition to scan (default Level 1 scan) and check whether it shows all your files. Report the results.

    It is already bed time for me. So I shall see it tomorrow morning and decide what further we can try.
