Question about Western Digital 250GB MyBook External USB 2.0 250 GB Hard Drive
I have a lot of information and pictures already on my My book. It is now telling me that it needs to be reformatted in order to use...i have no access to the pictures/information. Will I lose them by formatting it now? And is there a way to remove the information before formatting? Thanks!
Suggest taking drive to a computer repair expert (taking another drive to save the files to) and see if they can recover the data. In future suggest never relying on any one drive, external or internal (or even DVD, tape drive etc etc).
