My MyBook Essential USB 3.0 2TB external died 2 days back. It was 5 months old. Above all I am worried about my data. My question is - Can I take the drive apart and use it with any other casing available in the market? What is the deal with the USB micro B port? Is the drive inside of the casing a normal one?
I don’t care about the drive anymore and I dont want to pay thousands of dollars to so called data recovery centers. I have checked the adpater and cable and both are working fine, which leaves me with the only answer that the drive has failed.
Can anyone please explain about the complicacies involved in doing so and what all things are needed to be taken care of? Any help in this matter will be highly appreciated.
