I cannot pick up my external hard drive on any computer. It was working just fine. Then started taking well over an hr to eject, then struggled to open my files within it & now it does not pick up at all. I have had to remove the external without safely removing it, as it was taking far too long. When I tried to eject it, the icons opacity would go less and nothing would happen. Eventually force eject pops up automatically. I click on it and then it doesnt force eject. It just stays as is.
The light is on and the motor or fan inside is running. I have tried to reformat the external, but it will not allow me to access the disc as the opacity is dim (Im guessing this could mean that the disc is frozen)?
Any advice would be great.
