Is there a way to recover lost data from my Western Digital My Book??

I had to transfer all files from my pc to my external hard drive. I think I deleted the files on the Western Digital by accident. Is there another partition or something I can do to recover deleted files from my Western Digital..? Please help!!

    Same thing just happened to me, I have a 1TB disk. All the data I just copied from my PC before istalling windows is lost. Also some of the old sfuff I have saved on the disk is damaged, unredable. Anyone know if there is a way to save the data? Is it the WD disk that is the problem?

Yes, there is a way to recover lost data from a WD drive.

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.

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

All right! Simply put aside this WD hard drive before you are really to restore deleted files, for anything new on the same drive could be a great threat to the original deleted files.

And then, take your time to pick out a proper data recovery program so that you could use it to restore these deleted files back.

Here is a drive data recovery freeware that always do its utmost to help resolve the data recovery problem:

How to recover data from a broken Western Digital My Book Essential


Remove the HDD inside the case,If the HDD inside is working, remove data with a usb to IDE/SATA Adapter. If the HDD is damaged, which is likely, It ,most likely, can be read, but I don't think you are going to like the bill for that service.

Help!! Western digital 500gb external hard drive ticking noise


Yes. This is going to sound strange. Put the drive in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer. Next day, take it out, hook it up, and see if it is recognized.

If so, under My computer, right click on the drive - click Properties - then Tools, then Error Checking. Check box Automatically Fix File System Errors. Let it run. If everything shows up, be ready to transfer wnat you want off of it.

Freezing shrinks the metal parts . Microscopically, but often enough to get stuck parts free enough to get working.

I just went through this with a 750Gig Book. now i have reformatted the drive (after transferring all over to new drive) and the clicking is gone and all disk checks are fine and i wonder whether to trust this device ever again... Hate to just throw out a large drive.
