WD HDD won´t work suddenly

Hey guys!

My problem with my WD 1TB HDD started today. At first it was like plugging in and plugging out once in a while in short period. I didn´t know what to think. Then I saw error message that I have to format my HDD to continue using but all my photos, music etc are on and obv I cant format it. And now if I plug it with my computer, nothing happens. White light blinks only once and thats it. One hour ago when I tried the white light blinks for 10 seconds or smth and then stopped. HDD made some strange clicks (dunno how to say it correctly but I havent heard something like that before).

What could be the problem and is it possible to fix it somehow?


Unplugging the drive without safely removing will damage the partition

check if the drive appears on disk management
