External Drive Failed. Need help?

Post by michealspencer » Mon Apr 26, 2021 7:45 am

Hi, My WD Passport 2TB External Drive Failed. I got a warning about the drive and shut down the system. Checked the cables etc and powered back up.

WIN 10 doesn't recognize the drive. I have tried various partition recovery and data recovery software with no luck

R-Studio sees the drive in the scan. Any help? Thanks!

1. If this is a failed hardware?
2. If no, this article may help: Data Recovery from an External Disk with a Damaged File System.
If yes, go to a professional data recovery specialist.
