I am using a Mac Book Air (early generation) and I have a WD 1 TB Passport HD that has worked perfectly for a few years but yesterday, it stopped appearing on my desktop. The WD Smartware icon appears on the desktop but not the HD.
I have tried the following:
Using a different USB cable
Plugging into another computer
Plugging the HD directly into the Mac Book Air
I have checked the disk utilities and it appears there: 999GB My Passport. From here is have Verified the DH and checked for anything to Repair but nothing seemed to work.
I can’t try a different USB port as my old Airbook has only one.
My whole life is on this HD - photos from the past 25 years so I’m keent o try to restore it - can anyone help?
