Hello. I'm new on the forum. I apologized if the answer is already posted for this problem.

I have this Western Digital 500GB HDD, Model: WD5000AAKX-001CA0 that when connected to my PC only hangs at Welcome to Windows for eternity.
SMART data before says it has 45% of life so I stop using it and wait for replacement. Now I can't access this drive to copy my files. :(
I tried using a USB enclosure it shows only a drive letter but can't access either.

I there a way I can recover my files?

Tahoe_LT always suffering from slow responding. However, precise diagnosis required.
Search for MHDD bootable and try to diagnose your problem and post the results.

Better yet, if the data is very important to you plese do consider to send the drive to a specialized data recovery firm and NOT a regular computer repair shop.

At this point it might still be a very cheap recovery...
