My WD MyBook Studio II died. It had started disconnecting from the host computer - and I copied-off one of the main 2 data folders.
Right now, it will not power up. Presumably the cause is the drive power supply or base circutry. When I originally formatted and configured the drive I set it up to be a mirrored set of 2 1TB drives (formatted Mac Journalled, extended). Presumably, the folder I’m looking ot recover should be on either otr both of the 1TB drives in the encliosure.
If I were to buy an inexpensive drive encloisure and open the WD case, should the drives be easy to mount in a new enclosure.
- additional info - this folder contains my basic documents since the mid-90s - although the stuff I’ve needed in the past 2 years has been relocated elsewhere. So, although I don’t want to lose this stuff, it’s anything but dynamic - so an old copy is fine. Hopefully, even if one drive is corrupted from a power down head crash, the other shoudld have usable info.
Any suggestions or guesses on my chances for success?
