Download the BartPE bootable iso and burn it on to a CD:
It has some nice data recovery softwares. Boot using the CD and run the data recovery software(s) and you should mostly be able to get your data back - save it to your other hard disk.

To save your data from a bad Wd Ebook you need to download UBUNTU and burn it to a cd. Boot from the cd. Do not install Ubuntu just click try it out. When it loads turn on your Ebook and iit should appear on the desktop. If not click the places tab on top and find it there. Right click the EBook and mount it. Now you have access to all the data on the ebook. Iy yoou have enugh space n your cpu hard drive save it there, if not you will need another surce large enought to copy the data to.. I have used this method to save many hard drives, flash drive and other unreadable media. if the drive is totally toast you are out of luck but this method works moost of the time. Any questions drop me an email.

On the plastic sides of the case, near the back, there are 2 holes - one on each side. Inside these holes are recessed plastic tabs. You should be able to look in the holes and see part of the tab.
They don't take much force, but if you insert a straightened paperclip or coat hanger, just enough to push the tabs a couple of millimeters, you can then slide the top half of the case forward and off.

Yes it is possible but the Iomegas are difficult to open and you often snap the plastic retainers in the process. Given you can buy a !TB comlete for only about $20 more than buying the raw drive I suspect you would be better advised to simply replace the unit all together,

This is one of the mean tricks that the industry uses to discourage people from opening things and then totally ruining them.
What about getting yourself a 5-star-shaped screwdriver? Ask your hardware store guy.
Too expensive? Well - I have a lot of different simple slotted screwdrivers. Normally I find one that fits into 2 corners of these "miracle screws". If you don't have fitting one use a cheap one that is slightly too large to fit and grind it down just to size.
The same trick works with the other kind of "discouragement screws" that have ALMOST a normal slot --- but there's an elevation in the middle of it. A slot screwdriver with a ground-in **** in the middle (Dremel tools work fine) does the trick.
