Re: Recovering data from a USB WD drive
I went through the same scenario with a WD USB drive a few days ago. I ran Data Lifeguard, the WD diagnostic tool, which told me the drive was fine even though Windows couldn't access it and it just sat there clicking. Not thinking it would work, I ran chkdsk anyway just to be thorough, and to my surprise all was well afterward.
All else is in doubt, so this is the truth I cling to. My Stuff
