Hi, just 6 hours ago, my sister mistakenly dropped my WD ELEMENTS USB 3.0 500GB EXTERNAL HD. It was dropped at a height or approx 50cm. Then I plugged in again, but it was not even displaying for a minute and then suddenly my PC gets slow while the HD is plugged in. It is not showing in my computers, but sometimes it displays it but it keeps saying format, but I don’t really want to do this because I got lots of important data in it. The light blinks normally and so does the motor. I have 1 year of my warranty left, should get it replaced with the data recovered, or is there an easy fix for ??
Please help me I’ve got lots of important data in it worth 300GB.
