Default external

So a couple of weeks ago i dropped my external hard drive. And when i tried to take stuff off of it, all of it was gone. So i take it i damaged the drive. But if the computer still reads it and all could i just reformat it and put the drive in a new case and have it work? Or is it trashed?
