I have a 500GB WD MY passport USB 2.0 external hard disk. I am unable to access the hard drive and its properties are showing 0GB though it has aroung 300 GB data. I downloaded Western Digital Data LifeGuard Diagnostics - WinDlg (DLGDIAG for Windows) v1.27 and has run EXTENDED TEST and it has found some bad secotors. Software also gave option to rectify bad sectors and I had done so. However the external hard disk is still not been accessible.Diskpart and Chkdsk also did not work. I am worried as I have 300GB data on this disk and I need your help to advise me solution to this problem. Please help me how can I access the hard disk and data within. PLZZZ HELP ME
Sorry to hear about your experience with your unit. How is the drive showing under disk management?
Have you tried using a data recovery software to see if you are able to recover the files?
