I have a usb 2.0 mybook essential 2tb that I have been having problems with for a year now. the transfer rates I was getting were extremely slow compared to when I first got the drive transfer rates were 24-30 megs per second at first then suddenly it dropped to 100kb-4megs per second. I ran the diagnostic test in smartware and it said I had bad sectors. So I decided to backup my data and try to fix the drive but transferring 1.4 tbs of data at a rate of 2 megs per second would take forever.
I read that if I transferred the drive into another enclosure with with a faster bus the transfer speed would be faster so I took out the drive and put it in a esata enclosure but of course the drive did not. I tried putting it back into the mybook case but the drive started showing up as unallocated.
I want to know if there is anyway I can restore the file system and the file table without using standard data recovery software?
If I put the drive into a mybook usb 3.0 case will it be able to decrypt the data?
