Western Digital MyBook Data Recovery

WD My book drives are different than small external drives, it comes with an Ethernet port so you can always access it through the network. Usually, these devices have big desktop drives inside and have a structure that is not always portable. When WD My book fails then data recovery becomes very important as it cannot be recovered just at home. These drives are pretty different than other drives as the main problem with it is the encrypted firmware. Most of the time before recovering the data it requires to decrypt the data first, then head replacement and imaging are done.

Common Western Digital Hard Drive problems

WD Hard drives clicking noise

In older versions of WD drives clicking noise problem would come if the PCB get a short circuit. And the easiest fix for that was to just replace the whole board with similar donor drive or just replace the particular burnt chip. But as technology evolved, WD drives have evolved too. Now new drives don’t come with the ROM chip soldered on the board so it doesn’t get a short circuit. In today’s drives clicking noise come cause of bad read/write heads and to fix that it requires clean room facility.


Today almost every laptops and desktop come with WD hard drives inside. If you drop your laptop by mistake and after the drop, it gives you “No bootable device found” or a “Blue screen of death” means your hard drive inside has failed and you require data recovery help. Today almost every 3rd recovery case is about dropped hard drives or laptops.
