I have this portable disk - Western Digital elements external disk
all of a sudden the disk cannot be read. it has the LED light lighting but does not show on windows explorer.
also shows on safely remove list only.
I have downloaded several data recovery software that also supposedly fixes master boot records but non of them recognize the existence the drive to start with.
formatting is NOT and option. as I have data.
software so far used are
Active File recovery , Ease US data recovery , Partition Guru , Wondershare Data Recovery
