I have a WD MyBook 1140 which was working fine a few years ago and mysteriously stopped working under normal circumstances. I put it into storage because I just didnt have the time at the moment to diagnose. I just found it in an old box and would like to get it up and running.
The hard drive spins find when connected but does not show up as a disk drive. I can see it by name on the safely remove hardware and on the device manager. It shows on disk manager as not initialized.
I have tried what I can do from solutions I found online but with no luck. I have also tried "MiniTool Power Data Recovery" and the external HDD shows up in the program but both the Lost Partition Recovery and Damaged Partition Recovery did not find any files.
Can someone please point me in the right direction?
