Your hard drive might be failing. Or it is possible that GetBackData might have a bug. Have you tried the latest version of the software? Try a different software to see if that helps.There are even some freeware data recovery softward utilities out there. Google for them.

I have a w.d. external HD all my files is gone, so how can i get it again? but if i check the propeties the used space is it there.. so how can get back again?


To recover your WD files, please follow the below steps:

First thing first - STOP using your WD drive immediately! If you continue using the disk drive, you significantly increase the risk that the files you want to recover will be lost forever due to overwritten. Every new file or action will take up more "free space" and reduce your chances of retrieving your deleted files from WD. So really, you need to act quickly.

The next step - get a good HDD data recovery software to retrieve the data as most as possible.
