Hi all ,
I’ve had a friend pass me her WD drive as it’s failed and will no longer be recognised in Windows.
Inside Windows Disk mgmt, it detects the drive however says “not initialised”, you try initialise the try and it says “Error: Media is write protected”.
The drive is just under a year old, has non-backed up data on it which she would prefer not to lose.
Anyone else had the same drive fail like this?, I’ve just been quoted $750-2500 NZD to fix =/
The drive has not been dropped at all and this started happening after a reboot.
Any recommendations would be appreciated, I’m presuming I need to use the data forensics guys just curious if anyone has expierenced the exact same issues, I couldn’t really get any definitive answers via google.
Cheers - Seth
