    Hook it up to a different computer to see if it is an issue with your Windows installation or if it is an issue with the drive, if you have not already.

    If diskmgmt.msc and BootICE can't see it either, you may be in trouble...

    My suggestion....

    Bust open the external case and plug the hard drive direct to a motherboard via sata/power connection...

    Again it may be a long shot but i have saved some stuff on drives doing that.....

    Again what can it hurt to try right.......

    I bet Something else and Caballero were the class clowns at school just like they are now clowns.

    There's lot of great comedians from Texas but I think the only actual clown may be Ted Cruz.
