Hi there,
Please connect your external HDD as a slave on another machine and see if you will be able to backup all your data in there. Once you've copied all your data across, format your HDD using the NTFS format and convert it into MBR partition and you should be able to use your HDD again as a normal external HDD.
Good luck mate
Let me know of the outcome.
