Hey guys. I just had to reset CMOS on my computer and now one of my 1tb HDDs is not being recognized. Windows disk manager says "Disk 3 Not initialized" I click initialize and then when I select GPT it says"The specified disc is not convertible because the size is less than the minimum required for GPT discs" Any ideas? I have a lot of stuff on the drive and I would be a wreck if I lost it

How does CrystalDiskInfo detect the drive? Does the HDD spin up? Does it click?
I can feel the disk spinning but even crystal disk info doesn't detect it
Do you think the drive is just totally busted? It is from 2012 and wouldn't surprise me if it died on me. It's just that I have a lot of recordings and backups of pictures on it and I also have Zelda BOTW on an emulator that I have over 40 hours on and I really don't wanna lose all my progress.
