    “Saving your external hd casing” would have been a better title for the video then. Or “How to open/close external hd in casing”. You make a valid point in that you save money, but the title for the video was misleading (for me at least). I am having a corrupted hd that won’t open anymore and I’m not sure if it’s hardware or software related. I realize in most cases my content is lost, but I’m hopeful. Putting the hd in and out of its casing is not gonna ‘fix’ it.

    I can understand where your confusion comes from. Your to focused on “FIXING” the hard drive that is currently in the enclosure. External hdd’s are more expensive than internal hdds so it would be cheaper to “fix” your ext this way then buying a completely new external hdd. (using your old enclosure = saving money). Thats what this video is about. If you dont like it or dont understand it im sorry.

    Not to be an a*****e or anything, but he has a point. You’re not fixing anything, you’re putting the hd in its casing.

    Seems like you should have something better to do than complain and be jealous of my success. I bet a 4yr old kid could do it after watching my tutorial video. Just like 56,000 other people.

    Seems that you don’t what you talking about! That’s not repairing or fixing a hard drive! You just wanted to be noticed. Even a 4 year child can do this.

    True. Search the following on google, “Save a Failed Hard Drive in Your Freezer, Redux”

    Will be the first one their. Check into that as a possibility.

    I think the files might still be there . I got it to work yesterday for a while. Even if it doesn’t work, wouldn’t be to bad to try an enclosure case.

    Yeah you can purchase an enclosure and place your existing hdd in it, but the prob your having makes it sound as if the hdd is broken not the enclosure.

    My wd drive turns on. At least the light does. But it won’t seems to be struggling with powering on something . I can hear a clicking sound. I believe the files are still there , but something Is wrong with its electronics. Could I remove the drive and put it in another? With the files still in it?
