Has such failures discussed many times. Please use those but be aware that to attempt to get the files out we will void the warranty (read the other discussions please.)
Just wondering. Where are the backup copies?
Two weeks ago I purchased a 2.5" Transcend storejet 500gb external harddrive. This one:http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=355479
Worked fine but went to plug it in today, and it makes a funny beeping noise for a short period and nothing shows up on my computer. The light comes on, on the external harddrive and everything, and I've also tried it on another computer getting the same problem.
I have about 100gb worth of movies on there that I want to get off as I bought the drive specifically to put movies on. When I used it yesterday I didn't use the safely remove hardware feature and instead just straight unplugged it, which can apparently corrupt it.
Just wondering if anyone has any idea's or software that I could try on it to get it going again. Other wise they will replace it under warranty but I wont get any of the data back.
Appreciate your help
