So I have a My Passport 1TB. And it has been working great without problems for the past few months… or since I bought it.
As usual, it is plugged in to my PC and it was working fine till this morning. I have no idea why or how but it stopped being detected on my desktop (Windows 7) and laptop.
It makes a ‘whirring’ sound (not sure what sound is that but it is not a ticking sound that’s for sure) for a few times then stops. The power slight is still on but it just won’t get detected.
I have important files in it. And I do not wish to reformat it.
Is there anyway to fix this?
At least give me enough time to backup or transfer my files before reformating the drive.
