Question about Western Digital My Book (WDG1U2500) (G1U2500N) 250 GB Hard Drive
What can I do from here, if it is failing? Anything salvageable?
If it is just starting to fail, you can certainly salvage as much as you can before complete failure. Is it still recognized by the computer, copy as much data off as possible. If it is not recognized (already failed) you may have a bad enclosure. If the enclosure is bad, perhaps you can take it apart and hook up the drive as a slave in your computer. This will truly tell you if the drive is going bad or it was the enclosure. If the drive truly is bad, your only recourse is to send it in to get the data recovered by a data recovery company (plan on spending at least $300-$1000).
