SOURCE: recover western digital passport "sync-data"

You need to have the WD Sync program on your computer; you can get it from your WD Passport, or, over the Internet. Once you have the software on your computer, you can synchronize. WARNING: Do not think that theyourWD Passport, using the WD Sync software, is a
backup drive; it is NOT !

As per the documentation with this device:
"synchronization software is intended to synchronize the data from a
computer to the drive (WD Passport) and SHOULD NOT be used as backup
software. To use this software properly, we advise that you do not wipe or
erase the data from the internal hard drive (computer) and resynchronize, as
this will cause the data that WD Sync stored to the Passport to be deleted."

This is why you are hearing so many people saying that they are deleting the
WD Sync software, reformatting, and using the WC Passport as a true backup
drive where you can actually see the files that you are backing up, rather
than a bunch of unrecognizable sync files that likely don't have all the files that you thought you "backed up".

The port of my Western Digital Passport damaged


You can open the case, and access the harddrive inside it. I found there are videos explaining the process on youtube. You can also find some info on Google. You'd then need either a USB SATA adapter, or a desktop computer with a SATA port that's not already occupied. Search for: western digital passport open case

Need help to locate Western Digital Passport 160GB External Drive

Dropped a WD passport drive, now it won't load. HELP!


Unfortunately, these drives are not made to be dropped.

It sounds like it was damaged by the drop which could have rendered the read/write heads inoperable or mis-aligned.

Contact Western Digital for a warranty replacement.
