Was in the middle of creating an image on my data drive after todays update and at first, it threw write errors during the verification portion. The next try, more write errors almost immediately upon first scan. Went to disk management and it was no longer there, no partition nothing. Pulled it out tried on another computer and it seems that it will no longer power up. Just need conformation, I am screwed, no way to get any data at all without it at least powering up.?? The drive is 9 months old, still under warranty, worried about the data on the drive. What does WD do with dead HDD's? Maybe I will "adjust it" with my 2 pound hammer and loose the $ rather than risk data breach.
