I have a broken WD 500GB external hard drive, which accidentally got dropped and I cannot get any files from it. Although computer is recognizeing it. I let an IT guy to check the drive and he said that I need to find exactly the same drive to get some components.
Hard drives exact model is WD5000AAVS-00ZATB0, but I didn’t find any drives with that name with google’ing. Are there any other WD drives with similar components, which could be used to repair the broken one?
Any information helps! Thanks in advance!
