The MyBook 1.0 Tb network drive is no longer available using Windows Explorer. I used to have access to the /Public folder under “My Network Places”, but it no longer shows up there. I have unplugged and re-plugged the MyBook back in but the “blue” circular lights no longer come on, so I’m assuming I have a hardware problem. I removed the hard-drive from the MyBook enclosure and inserted it into a Sata-to-USB 2.0 docking station and I was able to see the “Master Boot Record” and 4 partitions on the drive using the “Disk Management” console used in Windows XP. All 4 partitions are listed as “Healthy” but I can’t assign a drive letter to any of the partitions. Consequently, I can’t access all of my data that is stored on the hard-drive.
Is there a method to be able to access my data? I can’t use the MyBook enclosure because it doesn’t seem to be able to boot-up anymore, and I don’t want to reformat the hard-drive to be able to assign drive letters to the 4 partitions so I can access the data using Windows Explorer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
