USB Portable HD Lost Space

I had a problem with my computer on the latest updates to windows 10. I eventually got it restored with a fresh install. But that was not before it has my portable 1T HD to not show up in my computer but only in my devices. I have ran every trick I know of pretty much, but it will only show up at some ties as unallocated, but then says there is not enough space to format to a GPT or any other format. It is if the whole HD is empty with no space. I saved and got back a 128 Flash Drive but this trick did not work for my HD. But my FD showed up in my computer where my HD does not.
Amy ideas or tricks. I would appreciate them.
