My 1TB WD Green HDD is not getting detected in BIOS. So, i used a docking station in another PC to investigate what went wrong. I used a number of partition utilities to investigate. I am sharing the results. Please guide me.

In my opinion you need to consult a pro, before it's too late.
In the last screenshot, the drive responds with a CRC error, which can be caused by failing/weak heads (amongst others).
If the data is valueable, I wouldn't risk hammering it with various software solutions.

If you are going to risk to loose all the data for good at least :

- Connect the drive by SATA and NEVER USB.

- Check S.M.A.R.T. for re-located and pending sectors. If any consider that the drive might have a slow issue as well.

- Patch the firmware if needed to disable re-loaction.

- clone the drive to another one using ddrescue or HDDSuperClone.

- If needed extract the data FROM THE CLONE using something like R-Studio.

Of course if data is of any importance to you do consult with a specialized data recovery firm !

Good luck !
