5 WD Hard drive no longer work

hello, i am not yelling but can only type caps. I several years ago before the prices went way up hard drives I bought 4 WD Ext. Hd and I already had one. That gave me a total of 11 external. The others are Toshiba and Seagate. I am unable to access any of the WD. They all went within a 6 month period.

What tools/software should I get to recover my Data and maybe get one or two to run again?

Any suggestions? All ideas welcome. Tim


If the drive is spinning and shows up in Disk Management (Windows), or Disk Utilities (Mac OSX), but cannot be accessed, then the drive’s partition table is most likely damaged or corrupted. It may be possible to still extract the data utilizing data recovery software. Western Digital does not provide data recovery software. However, there are several kinds of Data Recovery software available. If you do a  web search for  Data Recovery  it will yield plenty of data recovery software options.

If the drive does not show up in Disk Management (Windows), or Disk Utilities (Mac), and you have tried all the troubleshooting options relevant to your drive, then your drive has most likely failed and you will need to contact a data recovery company to retrieve your data.
