I’m having some problems with my WD external hard drive, and I’m not sure how to fix this.
The problem started recently after importing some pictures from a digital camera to my iPhoto library located in the external drive. I’ve imported the pics, and shared them to facebook with no problems directly through iPhoto. Afterwards I wanted to share a specific photo in my friends facebook wall but when I was trying to access my iPhoto library through facebook I got stuck. Could do anything on my computer, so I’ve restarted it. The WD drive mounts well, but doesn’t unmount saying that is being used by another application (which application I can understand). This doesn’t allow me to used disk utility to repair the disc, and even stuck all my attempts to scan and clone the disk using Data Rescue 3. The WD disc is formatted as MacOS extended (with registry).
Can someone point me out in a direction on how to recover my disk and its files?
Forgot to mention that each time I connect the disc 3 files appear on my recycle bin that I can’t delete. No sure if its related or not.
