I dropped my 500gb WD My Passport external hard disk today 0.5 meter down while copying files into my laptop. After the impact, the transferring speed became very slow and the progress bar does not move at all. When I cancelled my transfer, I safely removed it from my laptop and nothing’s wrong. I plugged it in again to my laptop and the message box dialog shows that i need to “scan and fix”. I cancelled it and when I try to copy/move/delete files from my external hard disk, it takes a long time before doing the process (maybe 30mins, or longer)
The light is still flashing, there is no clicking sound, and I can still open my files inside it.
Is anyone else here have a suggestion?
sorry for my bad english >.<
