Where to start? …
My WD My Essential - External Hard drive 1TB has been acting up in the recent Month or so.
It takes 15-20 minutes for my computer to read.
When it’s finally accessible, and I click ‘My Book’ It occasionally freezes and reads (Not Responding) - This happening more and more frequently.
When I close the window it disappears completely, taking out my bottom Bar with it.
Occasionally in the Hard Drives folders say’s that it is empty. - Although it still says it has 200GB+ of data in it.
It freezes constantly, even when just trying to access a folder.
As for the Hard drive itself. - When turned on, The Fan (or something) inside Jerks around.
When turned on, the LED flashes repeatedly, stops, flashes again, stops and continuously does this throughout the time it’s on.
I think It must be having a hard time reading the files.
Any help? Ideas to fix this?
