Hi everyone. I’m new here and i’ve got some questions about what is going on with my My book. I’d really appreciate any feedback you guys can give me with this problem.
Okay so I’ve had my My book Studio edition 500GB hard drive (for Mac) for close to 2 years now and everything was goin great until this morning. I was in the middle of saving a photoshop file when my computer froze up. I went to the normal procedure of holding the power button down on my laptop to reboot but when it was finished i noticed the lights sort of blinking on and off on the Drive. It was a blinking pattern i’ve never seen before and it wasn’t makin the sound it normally makes. It wasn’t making any sound at all. So i unplugged it and plugged it back again and the light came back to normal but it wasn’t being recognized by my laptop and there still was no sound. I dunno if just overheated and the fan stopped or what the case is, but i have no clue. It’s still not being recognized and the “mybook icon” is not showig up on the desktop.
I’m really scared because my whole life is on this thing. I have some stuff backed up but most of it is all on there. I am really afraid of any data being unrecoverable or lost. I’m planning on sending it out to see if data can be recovered, etc. but if anyone can please give me any feedback to somewhat ease my mind (IF Possible right now) i would be so thankful.
Thanks in advance.
