I recently bought a WD 1 TB hard drive, and after transfering all my photos and videos to it, it is now not recognized in windows 8.1.
So it worked for about 10 minutes.
Now all my important files are on there.
When I connect it, windows doesn't recognize it yet it shows up in hardware.
Took it to the shop, it is a power feeding failure so they say and all my files would be lost.
How can I get my files of there, and hopefully uncorrupted ?
I used Recuva software to get the deleted files of my laptop but only that was good for a bout %70 percent of the files. The files that were corrupted I used stellar phoenix JPEG recovery but that didn't repair any corrupt images or movies.
Do I need to take it to a data recovery lab and hope for the best ?
I am at the end of my tether now and don't know what to do.
Please someone help ?
