I have a My Book Essential 2TB drive that the enclosure died on.
I took the drive out and plugged it into my onboard SATA controller to recover the data from the drive, but am unable to do so. All I get is an ‘Unknown Partition Type’ and the drive is unreadable under both Windows XP and Linux.
How can I recover my data?
Or has Western Digital’s infinate wisdom in sticking everyone with that Virtual CD and their inferior Smartware software caused me to lose nearly 2TB of data?
I have been a big fan and user of Western Digital drives in the past (11 WD drives on just this 1 computer alone), but I am really beginning to change my mind about that after seeing this ■■■■.
