I’ve been preoccupied trying to figure out how to recover important files from 2 of my WD passport hard drives.
They were working just fine 2 days ago, but today I discovered that one of them has what appears to be a dead motor, and the other has bad sectors!
Lesson learned-Avoid the ultra-portable WD passport hard drives like the plague! (and maybe all WD hard drives in general?)
At least I bought them from Costco, from where they’ll be sent right back to WD where they can keep the garbage they sell…
At any rate if anyone has used any good data-recovery companies please let me know!
