Hello,

Try this 1

Check the "File System". If the "File System" is RAW, then may be partition got

damaged or corrupted.

If you want to recover the data from it then follow the below instructions

Click on the below link and download the application

http://www.powerdatarecovery.com/download/pdr6free.exe

After launching the application, check the check box "I am a home user, please

launch MiniTool Power Data Recovery Free Edition" and then click on "Launch

Power Data Free Edition" button.

Select the option "Damaged Partition Recovery" and follow the instructions. It

will try to recover the data from the damaged partition.

Good Luck

I am confused. I select damaged partition recovery and am completely lost at what to do next. There is nothing listed there that even looks like my external WD drive. I don't have a clue on what to do to recover my files on my external drive. It has completely failed and I need to recover all the info in order to send it back to WD for a replacement.
