I used to have a little gaming computer:
intel core i5 4690k
250GB Samsung 840 SSD (running the OS)
1TB Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB (for data)
I rebuild this computer, new motherboard and all...
intel core i7 5930k
16GB DDR4 RAM
512GB Samsung 850 Pro (running the OS)
2TB Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB (it suffers from clicking so Ill be replacing it)
Now heres the problem...
I can get and view files from the Samsung 840 SSD using a USB to Sata cable.
But I cannot get the 1TB Wester Digital Caviar Black one to mount or read data.
It shows up in "My computer" (drive letter F:\)
But no data bar or name, just "Removable Disk"
The drive is functioning perfectly. Worked fine in the old computer up until I plugged it into my new computer with a Sata to USB cable.
I have so much data on that drive that I cannot live without. I do backups but there is new data that I cannot afford to loose.
My life is on that drive, sounds over the top but from the start of my computing life, everything is on it.
Please please help me.
I've tried so many tools like EASEus, USB Device Viewer, Get Data Back and so many things.
I have no money for data recovery... of course, I spent it all on the new computer.
I feel so stupid for not doing a backup of that drive before I built the new PC.
Tomorrow (Because its midnight here)
I will put back together my old PC and see if I can read the data from it like that.
If anyone has an answer just tell me. I am so desperate Im nearly in tears.
I will be so thankful if anyone can help.
