My Book - 3tb - NOT Showing Up

The external hard drive will not show up in the directory. It was working fine, the power plug came out of the back of it so I pushed it back in and it has not worked since then. The light’s on, but nobody’s home. There’s a lot of stuff on there and I hate to lose it.

I got this thing nine months ago. I have another one that’s about 2 years old and it works fine.

The power interuption probably corrupted the drive. Try data recovery software like Recuva is free and this one Maybe booting from a Linux Live CD will get you access to the data to copy it off.
