I have a My Book Essential which the USB board is burned out, I have taken the HDD out of the box and connected to the PC the drive is detected normally and no problem on the drive itself but the data is lost (there is no partition visible from Gparted (Ubuntu))
I have tried photorec and tesdisk to recover files and I can get very much files but the strange thing is that there is a many files of very big size 2Gb, 8GB… with extension SWF, ISO … Every files seems to be unusable, I guess data is encrypted or corrupted…
What is the FS of the My book 1 To USB?
If I replace the SATA/USB2.0 broken card, do I have a chance to get my files back?
Someone has another solution to recover data from this device?
Thank you and best regards
