I’ve got an external WD passport (I think that’s the version) HD that I use to copy quite a bit of “stuff” off of my old laptop. For some reason, when I plug it in this morning, the light on the drive flashes in a regular fashion (three flashes, pause, three flashes, pause, etc. - maybe that means SOS?) and does not stop. When I try to access the drive I get a message saying error, the disk structure is corrupted and unreadable. When I right click, Properties/Tools and then try checking for errors, I get a message that Windows can’t access the drive.
Is there any hope at all at getting some of the files on this drive?
