    Test with a different cord and a different computer. If that does not help, try running a checkdisk with the fix options on the drive, I've seen several posters that said that fixed the issues.

    If you had clouds storage, you need to contact the vendor, even if someone deleted your files, they have backups.
  2. Do you hear clicking noises coming from the hard drive when it is powered on?
