I have an external Hard Drive (WD My Book). I've been storing music on it and other data. Last week my computer which is running Windows 7 stopped recognizing it. I received a bunch of weird errors from asking if I wanted to format the drive to the drive just disconnecting from the computer after 10 minutes of use. Eventually, I was able to get the drive to re-connect, but when I went to my music folders, they are no longer showing as file folders, but as "FILE" only as the type. Other areas of the drive are okay. I've ran a CHKDSK and a Error Check and neither have corrected the issue. Please tell me this is not going to be a $1000 data recovery job. I had about 100 hours of music/audio. Let me know what if anything can be done by me to attempt to recover this.
