I have 2 TB WD My Book essential. Suddenly the devices has stopped working.
I tried using it on several machines with windows OS 7
The machine where i have installed smatware detected the drive and asks for password to unlock. (I never gave a password)
Other systems the disk is not detected. It shows a unallocated disk in Windows disk manager and suggests intailisation.
I tried recovering the data using various software, but i get an error as "The media is write protected".
I just want to recover the data, its very very important.
Request to help asap.
