    Hi
    Windows 10 operating system
    I was in middle of job application due in tomorrow.
    Plugged in my external hard drive which was working fine Thursday as needed to look back at other saved documents.
    Now computer cannot see/detect the hard drive. The light is also not on but it does make the connection noise.
    This drive is a year old & contains my life!!!
    Can anyone please help?

    The only thing I can suggest is to see if it works on a different USB connector and ultimately on a system. If it does work on another system there's additional steps that can be taken. Such as opening it up and inserting as a 2'nd drive. Only in a Dektop of course. Otherwise you can try a different caddie.
