I’ll try to make this simple. First off I live in a land far away from data recovery people and sources of parts, which is why those options are not workable for me. My issue : the controller on my 2TB MyBook studio (bought in 2011) has died a death. Drives seem fine. I’ve taken out the drives (A and B, both 1TB caviar), but since the controller made them seem as one 2TB drive, it’s pretty useless to try plugging them into my pc one at a time since they just appear as uninitialized drives. The drive was never set up with a password, and I’m unclear whether that means it wouldn’t be encrypted, or WD did it by default.
So what I want to know is, is there any way (ie some sort of software maybe) that can help me to read anything off these drives?
