before 2 days ago my WD Mybook 1 TG been attatched to my laptop until then, and today when i try to plugged it in again to store up some files again now it wont start working.
i bought it for about 2 monthes, been working fine until today;
i did not install the smartware that come with it, i plainly only use it as a backup storage drive;
the problem is, whenever i plugged it in my laptop, the driver show up in My computer or driver management or device mange windows, the autoplay window popup as well, but whenever i try to open the driver and then try to open any folder or file in the driver, it freezes up!( show as Not Respond in window tab) and if i wait for it to respond, the hard drive itself will just restarted.(the blue light turn off then turn on again in a few secs)it also freezes up my whole windows, which mean the explorer.exe froze until i unplug the driver;
I 've tried uninstall and reinstalling the driver, tried plugged it in other computers and it still doing the same;
I also tried using the testdisk the check it, but it didnt find any problem, also when i chose the option the “deeper Search” since it has to scan 1.3 TB, which is gonna take more than a day so i cancel it in the middle.
PLEASE DO NOT tell me to reformated it, since there are 200ish GB files in there i dont wanna lose, not to mention when i do anything to the driver, including right click on it and check its property it also freezes up.
so please if any1 good enough help me fix this problem. ty!
