Its my eDrive data HDD - not the Windows 7 cDrive. If this data is lost I'm as good as dead. Must be a way??

We really need more info about you HD's ?


Start Computer Management Disk Management
Maximize to full screen
Take a Snip of it with the Snipping Tool, Save snip, then upload the snip here in your post.


Sometimes putting an internal HD into a HD Dock unit will read a damaged HD

Big Red is showing up as your E: HD (approx 30gb) Try changing the Data & Power cables to the WD 2tb HD with new cables.
