i have portable harddrive from Western Digital Elements SE & it stopped getting detected on my computer, after bending cable , it initializes for few seconds & then turns off. I assume the Micro USB port is busted because I tried multiple cables & none of them work. How do we recover the data if the HD Micro USB port is busted ? Is it possible to replace/repair the soldered Micro USB port ? or get the data out?
If you need to recover your files, then you might need to contact a data recovery company. Check the link below for some info.
