    Hello, so.. I've been using this hard disk for around 3 years now but now it has suddenly stopped working, it's not detected by computer. I have checked Disk drives in Device manager and it appears there but not on my desktop or in My computer.

    Try to uninstall and reinstall the driver for it. That has sometimes fixed issues for me.

    1. Try it on a different computer.
    2. Try a different USB cable to connect it to your PC.
