WD elements SE 1 TB Just Solid Light and Running


I just want to recover some files from this drive. I haven’t tried another cable yet but I was wondering if I can get it to be like other SATA with switich the motherboard with that connection. If the light is on does it mean it is the connection that is the problem and still working. If you have any solutions please help. Any youtube video or sites will help. 


Hi and welcome to the WD community.

See if your hard drive is recognized on the Disk Management window. Check the link below for the steps. If the external hard drive is recognized, you should be able to use a data recovery program to recover your data, using Google you should get several options.
