Recently I’ve been working on a movie in Final Cut, using my external hardrive to house all of my data and pretty much everything from my computer so I have enough space to run Final Cut. Recently, I ejected the hard drive from my computer, but accidently unplugged it before it was completely finished ejecting from the computer properly (my computer was running slower than usual with Final Cut). After that, my hard drive stopped showing up on my computer - the WD smartware shows up, and I can unlock my hardrive, but after that, the smartware doesn’t show an external device, and neither does my computer. I tried using the DIsk Utility on my Mac to diagnose and solve the problem, but nothing ever happened, and it couldn’t discover an issue.
I was wondering if anyone might know a way to solve this issue, or if my information is at the very least recoverable - all of my documents, music and video were on it for the duration of my editing process, and I would really like to get that back.
P.S. - I have a my passport essential, 1TB
