Hello,





I have a 500GB WD My Passport Elite (external hard disc)

it was perfect until one day I plugged it in my laptop & it asked me to format my hard disc 0_0"

I CANT DO THAT OF COURSE!!!!!

some people told me I should format & then restore (not in this life!!!!!)
some people said you have to open the hard disc's case & it will be fine (since Iam going to return this thing from where I bought it & I have to keep it in good shape to do so I cant open the case -_-")
some people said stuff I couldn't understand (Iam good at computers but not THAT good !!!!)

HELP ME!!!!!!!!! I WILL DO ANYTHING!!!!!!!!! MY ENTIRE LIFE IS IN THERE!!!!!!!

HELP!!!!

Hi there,

Definitely if its corrupted and not recognized by system you need to format the device then run recovery software to get data back ,all depends on you now.

Good luck.
