Data Lost - Drive now has 6089429 TB / 5538303 TiB

My Hard Drive recently crashed. It began with messages from windows that the drive is currently in use and as I was just making a backup I lost it completely.
So I opened diskmgmt.msc and it wasn't initialised - so I tried rewriting the MBR - no luck.
Then after reconnecting it and hoping it maybe would magically work again it showed this in diskmgmt.msc:
Unbenannt2.png
Unbenannt2.png (39.59 KiB) Viewed 299 times
.
After seraching the Internet I then found this tool - testdisk.
It shows the same nonsense as windows:

Unbenannt.png (33.88 KiB) Viewed 299 times
(this also happend in linux btw) and trying to analyze it is taking forever.
Any thoughts?

Using the manufacturer tools or hdparm under Linux, you can try a DCO restore but if a wrong capacity is still reported, you should contact a data recovery company.
