Here are the circumstances of failure:
Some time ago my hard drive was plugged, and on, on Macbookpro, some power failure happened, and when getting power back, I called a video on Mybook, it played one minute or two, and froze. Since then I could not open the unit… the blue light goes on and on, and the unit does not connect to any computer. I went to Best Buy where I bought the hard disk…they had the same result as I did: no connection.
Someone could tell me about options to get the drive back to commission?
I already called a company who specializes in Data Recovery, but I found the cost very high. The Data includes mainly family pictures, some old movies, and some drawings of personal projects. In spite that I desperately wish to get back at least the family pictures, I look for options less expensive than what the Data Recovery company proposes. After all, this is personal, not a business.
