I am having issues with my external hard drive WD My Book. I have tried everything I could find online but still cant make it to work.
I have tried the Partedmagic Linux boot up using testdisk but the deep search returns partition not available. I used the process with a usb stick when starting the computer (not sure that makes a difference than using the CD process).
The drive its an WD Scorpion 2TB and sttoped working a couple of days ago. Its shows on Windows 7 as Raw and unallocated under Disk Management but cant access its files.
I am gutted as it had a lot of photos and films i accumulated for many years. There is about 1.5tb of data in there.
i have taken the drive from its encloser so I could connect with a sata cable to my pc but nothing as worked.
The only thing I have not tried is cloning it into another drive as I do not have one big enough. I have tried to start the process to see if it would work but even that says partition unavailable even before i starts.
I even took it to a local pc shop today to see if anything could be done but they said they could not read it.
I am open to ideas.
