I am very disappointed that my external hard drive stop working
I bought it few months ago and backed up tons of pictures and it was working fine until about a month ago
Now when I connect the external drive using the original USB cable to the same computer I have been using the drive for, it makes this strange clicking noise and the drive does get recognized by my computer (or my wifes laptop)
This thing did not even last for a year. Photography is my hobby and I was just using the drive to back up my photos (luckily I still have them all in my computer hard drive)
I can see the lights coming on when I connect the drive to either computers so I know it is not a connection problem and as I said I can hear rge drive atrying ! and then the clicking noise but nothing shows up on my compputer where it used to for few months.
should I just give up on this and buy a new drive?
PS I thought Seagate **bleep**! My previous Seagate lasted almost 2 years and I bought WD thinking this is a better brand but I was proven wrong.
