Hello, fellow users.
I’m a not-so-proud owner of a 2 TB My Book Essentials that gracefully decided it didn’t want to be read again, so now it just connects, spins, and sleeps on job. Apparently, this is a common thing. It wouldn’t be so bad if the freaking thing wasn’t encrypted, though. So, I have to replace the SATA board, since that is probably the issue. Problem is, there aren’t any replacement parts - how nice.
I have a My Book Elite 1 TB here too. I read it has the same type of encryption. Could I just switch drives and salvage my data?
Thanks in advance.
