I has worked sporatically in the past, meaning sometimes it wanted to show up but most times it didn’t show. It has gone through some decent stretches (3 weeks or so) where it works fine. Now it doesn’t work at all. Disk Utiity doesn’t recognize it. This is my back up drive I use with Time Machine and I haven’t had a backup since March 6th. I can’t afford to not be backed up.
What do I do now? It’s less than a year old, I got it in September of last year. I think I may have gotten a dud. Should I just ask Western Digital for a replacement? My other external is a 1TB My book which is 3 or 4 years old and it still works great.
