Corrupted Hard Drive

My first corrupted Hard Drive after 30 plus years. Here is my error:
x:\ is not accessible
The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

It is my storage drive and somewhat important to me. I do have some alternatives, but they are very time-consuming.

Is there a program or a way to save some of the data? It seems I saw something like that years ago. Here's hoping.
HardDrive: Seagate-Barracuda 8TB BarraCuda Pro ST8000DM0004
I know this is out of the realm of Opus. But I feel safer here.

Always had good results with File Scavenger:

FWIW: I've used with great success on dead hard drives.

Have you checked the hardware between the drive and the PC, i.e. cables and controllers?

How does the drive appear in the disk manangement tool (hit Win+R and run diskmgmt.msc)?
