Now I’m sure, it’s been over a week and finally there is no possability to restore anything from the hard drive.
After paying around 160€ for a new smaller main disk the AASP told me that he was not able to save any data and that the hdd even won’t show up in the disk utility.
So what’s the problem with Western Digital HDD’s ? This isn’t the first time I saw an WD disk stop working immediatly without any warnings. If it would be the hard drive of my macbook then ok, this one I carry around a lot. But my iMac is standing at the same position for over 1 1/2 years and wasn’t moved a single time.
this is a dark secret to me ?
what I’ve learned from this ……
