Question about Computers & Internet
I received a western digital 500 gig hdd for christmas and for the first couple days it worked perfect. The day after i got all my info backed up on it i got a message sayin i need to formatt it before i can use it. Right now i am taking it as a loss but if there is anyway i can recover my information i would appreciate the help.
It sounds like the drive failed on you - Are you saying you MOVED your
data to the drive and you no longer have the original data? Thats the
point of these drives is become a backup of your data. Always have 2
copies of your files.
You may have some luck with data recovery software if needed though -
