I have a Western Digital WD5000G032 - My Book World that has been on my network for several years. I use it to back up photos and archive files.
It started making a funny clicking sound, and since I was not using it, I unplugged it thinking that it might need to rest (the weather has been hot, and I thought it might need to cool off).
I can not restart it.
When I plug it in, I can hear it spin, but the blue lights on front do not turn on, and it just spins and clicks, stops after a few seconds, then spins and clicks again.
As I used this for back up, I would like to get my files back.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
