I recently bought 5TB Western Digital, brand new, no issues, installation went smoothly, mainly used to store movies and TV show, since I have no internet on board (I'm a sailor). I wanted to take some classic old movies from a colleague and once he returned it to me, my HDD was useless. It plugs in okay, and it ls being recognized by my PC. But once it's recognized, everything becomes unresponsive in my computer. Can't eject (eject option appears when I unplug), file explorer becomes unresponsive, no apps can open, if I already have the File Explorer open and connect the HDD and click on it, unresponsive and crashes. I tried formatting by right clicking on it, file explorer crashes, I tried through the cmd with diskpart, can't type (works fine when the HDD isn't connected), tried through powershell, can't type, tried restarting, can't restart. Nothing works when the HDD is connected, neither does scanning for virus. Then again, System and antimalware of windows 10 (in task manager) is using almost 100% my disk if I'm correct and my HDD makes a sound, usually when it gets recognized and appears in File explorer. Idk what to do, but I just lost around 1TB of movies and valuable info about my job. Any solutions would be very helpful. Other HDDs work fine.
