Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
The lights come on but the computer locks up . . . This happened after it was unplugged while machine was running . . . Is there a data recovery system or re-start inside machine . . . What do I do?
The drive sounds like its physically failling. Maybe the enclosure. i would open then enclosure, unless the drive means more to you than the data, you can send it to Western Digi for a replacement, but this does not include recovery. If the data is crucial, extract it, and make sure its the enclosure, not the drive that may be at fault.
