Hi,

You could refer to the following link: https://support-en.wd.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/12455

There could be various reasons for your external hard drive to become unresponsive or undetected. Well, one has to keep backup of his/her data so that if there is any data loss situation or anything bad happens to their storage device at least they had a backup of the files but when your drive got corrupted and you also don’t keep a backup of your critical data in that case data recovery is the only option.

You can try the below options to resolve the issue:

  • Run CHKDSK
  • Use an Antivirus & Anti-Malware tool
  • Re-install the drivers
