Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
But if I format it won't I loose everything? I really need what is on this drive. Thanks
What OS are you running? If Windows, try unplugging the USB cable, restart your system the reconnect the USB, go to computer management/disk management and see if your drive is visible and check its status. Should see it as Disk 1 basic, online, healthy. I had a like issue with a Maxtor external enclosure and that resolved the issue. All the data was present.
