Help with WD 3TB My Book Live

Hi, I have a wd 3t my book live which is a NAS hard drive. Bought it some time ago and 2 years ago I moved and had it in storage since. Now when I try to power it up and connect it to my network the device makes a little clicking noise and the status light goes red after a few moment. Any way to fix/recover the data.

Thanks for any assistance on this in advance.

Head damage is likely, but could be the actuator arm trying in a no/slow-spin situation. Under power try a wrist snap with the drive in your hand, if you get lucky.. that's the last time you'll see it alive.
