Wdbaaa5000asl-00 won't work on Catalina. Are my files unretrievable?


My drive isn’t wireless, but there’s not a category option for any other drive. Essentially, the subject says it all.

I have an old passport that has worked fine for nearly a decade. Occasionally I plug it in to retrieve some old work I need. Now that I’ve upgraded to Catalina, the drive is locked and the WD site says they no longer offer support for this model.

Am I screwed here? Kind of a lot of important info on the drive. Well, important to me anyway.

Thank you in advance for any advice you might offer.
