After backing up two of my HDDs to my WD20EARS the drive is not working anymore. Sounds like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYoiH-7rAEE&feature=related
But in my case there are only two sounds - first one is long and deep, second one short and high - repeating five times, then silence.
Seems like a stuck spindle to me - but what now? Since it is my backup drive there are files on it I don’t have on any of my other drives (stupid, I know).
If I send the drive back to WD, what happens with the data on it? Will it be restored (if possible) and copied on the new drive? Or do I just get a new drive and will lose my data?
