Hi all. I’ve had a WD 1TB passport for about a year already, and it has about 600GB worth of data inside including a few years’ worth of photos. I’m a student, so I cannot afford numerous hard disk drives and so I never backed up the files in this disk.
The hard disk was working fine just a few days ago. However, when I tried to access it this morning, I couldn’t. It used to show up on my computer as ‘My passport’, but now it’s ‘Local Disk’, and whenever I try to access it, I either get an ‘I/O device error’ or a ‘parameter is incorrect’ error.
Is there any way to recover the data inside? I am really not keen on losing all the documents and files I have accumulated and stored in this hard disk drive over the years.
Thank you for all your help!
