GEEK TO ME: All data storage media will eventually fail

Question: I keep my embroidery designs (thousands of them) on an external drive. All of a sudden I can’t get my external drive to open up on my laptop. I took it to my husband’s desk top and it gave me a message that it needed to be reformatted. That means I will lose all my designs. Is there anything I can do to save them? Please let me know if there is anything I can do, otherwise I will take it to the Geek Squad and see if they can help me.
