So, my trusty My Book drive suddenly wouldn’t turn on. I tried different wall sockets and even a different adapter so see if it was that. Long story but nothing worked. So I thought well no problem, I know it’s just a standard 3.5 inch Sata drive in there, so I thought “I’ll put it in one of my old HDD enclosures!” I did and now I keep getting a “This computer cannot read this drive” when I plug it into my Mac and when I try it on my windows PC it just shows up as unallocated space.
I called WD and they told me that their drives have a hardware encryption etc
I also called a HDD recovery service that said they can get the info off for me and decrypt the drive but its obviously incredibly expensive so I’m leaving that as a last resort.
Does anyone know how I can personally go about decrypting my HDD?
