WD easystore 8T just stopped working

My WD Easystore 8T just stopped working! Had previously passed all checks in WD utilities. Now it does not show up in explorer. When it is plugged in the status light stays on but it is dim. Is it dead?

Hi montegut,

It is recommended to check the drive partition in Disk Management and the drive status in Device Manager. You can refer the link mentioned below to check and follow the instructions to troubleshoot for the issue.
