Get a new case and a screwdriver. Move the disk from the old case to the new case. Then, if you're lucky, it works again. If not, you lost your data unless you pay a data recovery company to get them back.
Remember that, while an external hard disk is a great tool to move data from one location to another, an a quite acceptable tool to store a backup, it's a bad device to store the only copy of some file. It fails too often for that. But, if you have another copy somewhere, you won't lose anything.
Dear IT guru and friends.
- I bought it some years ago. Now my computer does not recognize it. When I plug it in USB port, the light of Maxtor OneTouch is On but it Off right away. I try it on other computer and my Laptop, all the same.
- How can I fix it, if not, how can I recover all data in the Maxtor external hard drive?.
Thanks and kind regards.
