Good day,

I have a Western Digital external HDD
Modle WD10000H1NC-00

it seems the Drive is ok however it appears the controller has failed.

How can I get the data off this drive it seems to be formatted in a Linux file structure.

Some things are making me worried about the drive
EG I can't clone it. No idea why. Acronis just won't start the process saying my destination drive is not big enough.

In Windows I can see the drive under device manager however I cannot read the drive.

I am a little stumped I am installed Ubuntu now to see if I can see the data. Other then that I am not really sure what else to do.

Any suggestions would be great
