1021 2TB model: WDBAAU0020HBK-NESN
I ran the Smart Diagnostic. Well, it said Too many bad sectors. Also, had no data ouput for having the smart protocol at all. Sounds like hell to me. I want to salvage it. It spins and sounds fine on startup. After the initial connect (it that is a true connection) it has me and everything locked out. Shows 2TB in properties has no Drive letter. in Disk Management says unallocated needs to be initialized. Cannot be intialized as it is write protected. again No spin at this point. Am I in denial? Loosing a tb of data is hard to process.
