My WD Elements hard drive is corrupt or unreadable and I would love a solution. Anyone have any tips to solve this problem at home?
When I plug the hard drive in its recognised but instead of registering as 'WD Elements' like it normally does it stays as 'Local Disk G:/'. When I attempt to open the hard drive it says 'G:/ is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupt or unreadable'
I'd love to be able to recover a majority if not all my data so any help would be great but the conpanies I've spoken to charge commercial prices which are just way too high!
I'm no computer expert though so keep it simple.

If you are under Windows operating system, go to Start > All Programs > Accessories, right-click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. In cmd window that appears type this:
chkdsk x: /f
(where x = drive letter associated with your external hard drive, and before x: and after x: there is a space)
and press Enter.
Command chkdsk (check disk) will correct errors and your external hard drive will be accessible again.

If data recovery services are not that you are looking for .. Try using Free data recovery software's. They might help you recover data
