I have Seagate hard drive, which unfortunately I have dropped too many times

and it simply stopped working today

when I plugged it into mine computer and another one, the icon of the external hard drive simply stopped coming up.

there is a small blue light on the hard drive, it usually turns on when I plugged it into mine computer, it has stopped come on.

is there a way I could recover data from this hard drive

thank you

Take it to professionals that recover stuff like this. But if you're adventurous and understand the risk (you could destroy any hope of recovery), you could take the hard drive OUT of the case that makes it "external" and put it into your computer. I've had the external controller break many times. The hard drive inside is perfectly fine.
