This drive was purchased only 18 months ago as a backup drive, so it has "everything" on it. "OF COURSE, IT DOES!"

I booted up and the drive is not recognized in my win 7 or on any other box. There is a brief spin for about 3 or 4 secs. then nothing.

My wife is beside herself because all my daughter's 2013 photos are on the drive - every month of the year.

Is there any home remedy to recovering this drive?

This is an internal drive.

Thanks, ---GRIFF
