If the hard disk is reading or writing data, then it is normal that the light blinks frequently. If it is not used, then I recommend you to run a disk check.

To run a disk check, start Command Prompt with admin rights and type the following:
  • chkdsk d: /f /r

Press Enter to start the process. Note: Replace d: by the letter of your external hard drive.

The above command will try to fix errors on the disk and locate the bad sectors and try to recover readable information.
