One of my external hard drives has suddenly failed on me(A Western Digital 1TB Elements). The power light is still flashing when its plugged in, but when connected to the computer the computer hangs for about 5 minutes before the drive is finally recognised. However it is labelled as 'local drive' and shows 0 bytes free and 0 bytes used. I can't view the files on there and if I do select the drive it tells me it isn't formatted.
What I want to know is, is there any way of getting the files off there onto another drive (luckily I have a lot of them backed up already)? Or can the drive be saved?
