Mcafee Encrypted USB drive, now corrupt, wants to format (raw)

I've been using USB encryption for the last 5/6 years and now my pen drive appears to have corrupted. It can't read the contents and asks me to format it. 

Is there anyway to recover the contents of the drive before doing so, I've a few documents I'd like to get back one spreadsheet in particular that I stupidly haven't backed up since May!! 

I tried testdisk to no avail as, like my laptop, it didn't recognise the USB. 

Or is there possibly a backup directory on my laptop that I can access that I don't know about?


Thanks in advance, although I'm holding little hope of a fix 😞
