My EHDD seems to be buggered - it’s a Western 80GB, with about 25GBs of tunes and pics on it. This was my back-up, and now it’s buggered up!
I plug it into my PC and the PC reads nothing. Then, a bit of luck, the PC picks it up - I click on its ‘properties’ - it shows there are 0GB of which 0GB are in use
It’s been in my bag for the last couple months, experiencing temperatures of up to 40 degrees and humidity of up to 100%, and it’s been through about 6 airport detectors in that time. I know I haven’t dropped it.
Any suggestions? Send it to a data recovery specialist, or is the guy fried? Is there anything I can try at home before I send it to a PC shop (not cheap)?
Your advice please…
