My book (wd)

Can some tell me how to recover my files from my book?

My son gave me his PC and for some odd reason, his my book files were still on that PC, so when i plugged in my book, it shows files all distorted and it gives me a error that the file is not accessible. Need help. I hope I don’t have to reformat my drive and lose all my files


Can you explain a little more what the issue is? can you post a screenshot of the error you are getting? and also what type of file are you trying to open?
