my 2 tb external hard drive spins after connected to my laptop but it’s not recognised. How can i recover it? is my data lost?
I suggest you to try the below solutions & check if that works:
- Plug the drive into another USB port
- Change USB cable
- Change drive letter
- Reinstall USB controller
- Update WD device driver
- Run anti-virus software
If nothing works, then there are chances that your drive itself is failing and you may need help of reliable data recovery software to recover you data. First, I will suggest you to try the above methods & share the result.
I appreciate your advice. I have tried most of them. re No.3, it doesn’t recognize the disk as a drive. I don’t know how to change the letter.
