My first time posting but been reading all the threads, amazing group of technical support is found here. A lot of help and guidance is provided with excellent results and resolutions. (fixes)
I'm having a tough time getting to recover all my files from my WD 1T External drive. Wont recognize drive - Wont show either
At first - when I plug in the device - I can see the drive flashing or blinking rapidly - after a while, there is this msg that popped up - says - device need to be format... Oh !! I said NO way .. So I ran a chkdsk on that drive - after an overnight check/fix
Restart laptop - I was now able to see the drive F: - However, When I go to click on F: - it won't bring anything and after a while Not responding. I tried this on three different computers - I bought an application for recovery - Installed app -
Open App and directed to device F: It ran for hours (12hs at least - It found all my files but when I tried to hit recover - it failed
but it was taking it sweet time - 8 hours and only recovered 3 files...950 G of data and I can't get to recover.
I'm trying not to go to theses expensive companies that would charge me $400-$1000 to help me recover my data.
Is there any other way I can recover my files - program/or software I can purchase ? Also, my computers are not top notch processor , probably need a computer with allot of speed..
can anyone assist me in get my 950 G of data .. for each time I take it to a different computer - at first , its looking at formatting the drive.. not a good sign...
Appreciate any help or guide to help me resolve this dilemma.. Thanks you all in advance
