I had a 3tb wd nas drive. Worked most of the time (windows sometimes refused to see it).
However there was a lightning strike and the case got fried.
I tried to plug into a desktop computer, figuring its a hdd. That fried the hdd card.
Bought a red 3tb used drive, transplanted the hdd card and the drive seems to spin up, however unreadable as there is encryption on the drive from wd.
I’m now looking for a 2011 model used to try and recover the data before sending it of to a highly expensive data recovery place.
What I wanted to know was if I could buy the hdd to nas part to read the data off the drive…?
I have a 1tb usb version from a year or so before the 3tb. But that must have a different encryption as it spun up but couldnt read.
I am in the netherlands
