I have a 3tb My Book Essentials (model # WDBACW0030HBK-01) which is well past warranty coverage. The enclosure was damaged in our move so I took the drive out and put it in my probox 4 bay enclosure.
The drive shows up as an un-allocated partition in disk manager and is not visible in explorer (Win 10).
I found that there was hardware encryption on this drive and I’m wondering if there’s anything I can do to get beyond that?
I tried to re-attach the board to the drive but (as mentioned above) the SS cable jack is broken.
I have sent a support email to WD - not sure I’ll get much response.
Hoping for some help
