hi! Im havng some trouble with my 1TB external hard drive.a few hours ago i was oping files and it worked fine. But now sometimes the drive works and sometimes it doesn't. all the time when you plug it in windows makes the device connect sound. But sometimes it asks me to format it but i dont want to as ive got 750GB of family photos on it. But Autorun comes up like 10 mins later. When i try to copy files to/from it iit just stays at 1% then the pc crashes and i have to unplug it to get the pc working again. Ive checked in device manager thingy and sometimes it says NTFS and sometimes it says unalocated, RAW. So all help s appreciated

Hello! When you back up data you should make two copies of the data, what I mean is, have the same files stored on two external drives. I'd go to the WD forums, good luck mate!
