It sounds as if the files system has become corrupt after the break in connection. You can only now connect the drive to a system running Linux or use a bootable Linux disk in your pc and see if it can recognise your 5000bev. If you can see your data the copy it to another good drive. You should now be able to use it.

urvey projects 9% growth next fiscal



Ashok Dasgupta




Pitches for continuing with tight monetary policies to help curb inflation




Favours gradual rollback of stimulus measures

A slew of reforms to spur growth



NEW DELHI: Barring inflation which continues to remain the government's "priority" concern, the Economic Survey 2010-11 on Friday painted quite a rosy macroeconomic scenario projecting a robust GDP (gross domestic product) expansion of nine per cent (+/- 0.25%) next fiscal - reverting to the pre-global crisis growth levels even in the wake of downside risks emerging from the current spike in oil prices owing to turmoil in the Arab world.

In almost a copy-book estimation of the economic environment as presented by the Prime Minister's Economic Advisory Council (PMEAC) in its 'Review of the Economy' and the measures prescribed to tackle the hitches impeding faster growth, the Survey pitched for continuing with tight monetary policies to help curb inflation and mitigate global risks arising from hike in food and commodity prices and debt problems in the Euro zone.

Tabled in Parliament by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, the pre-budget Economic Survey, like the PMEAC, also favoured a gradual rollback of the stimulus measures which were extended to industry to combat the slowdown that had set in following the global financial crisis in 2008-09.

Underscoring that inflation clearly still remained the "dominant" concern, the Survey stressed that "current growth and inflation trend warrant persistence with an anti-inflationary monetary stance" along with consolidation of the fiscal deficit which was essential to check price rise.

In his comments in this regard soon after tabling the economic report card prepared by the Department of Economic Affairs (DEA) in his Ministry, Mr. Mukherjee said: "Inflation is a matter of great concern, no doubt. Just one year ago in February 2010, food inflation was as high as 20.2 per cent...though it is high it has come down in January...still it is an area of concern and we shall have to work on it, particularly in the context of the global economic crisis."

High deficit

Apart from identifying the spike in global crude oil prices, owing to political upheavals in West Asia, and the Euro zone debt problems as downside risks, the Survey also highlighted the high current account deficit stemming from the fragile global recovery impacting the country's exports along with the increase in domestic consumption as another area of concern.

"The problem may be further aggravated by the rising international oil prices," it said.

Stating that the economy would grow by 8.6 per cent during the current fiscal, up from eight per cent a year ago, the Survey said: "It is expected that the growth will breach the 9 per cent mark in 2011-12."

However, for this to happen, it suggested a slew of reforms which include streamlining of land acquisition and environmental clearance norms so as to speed up planning and implementation of infrastructure projects, these being a crucial driver of overall economic growth.

FDI in retail

The Survey made out a case for gradual opening of the foreign direct investment (FDI) in multi-brand retail, in metro cities to start with.

"FDI in retail may help bring in technical knowhow to set up efficient supply chains which could act as models of development," it said.

You lost the Operating System on that drive. You still can get data back if the drive is used as a Second Drive in the system or an AUX Drive in a secondary device.

I HAVE SOLVED THE PROBLEM! or at least this works for my my book 1tb external hard drive. when i initially connect it i get the 'new device detected' pop up thing, but then it doesn't show on my computer. However, I have found that keeping the device pllugged into the computer but removing then replacing the power source from the device causes it to show up. That's all I did, unplug the power cord on the back and replace it. The computer says 'new hardware detected' and 'found my book mass storage device,' then it appears on my my computer tab. Hope this works with you as well!

You may need a new Hard Drive. It sounds as if you have the old Mac. Mini. If so? look on line for Mac Mini 4,1 "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 (Mid-2010) you can find good deals on one, that would cost as much to repair your unit. eBay is one place to look

Download testdisk and run it to see if it recognised in the list. If so use the intel option to find a boot sector

Unfortunately it sounds like your hard drive has failed. If the data is extremely important and you have plenty of spare cash there are data recovery companies out there that may be able to help but as far as I can tell these are seriously expensive.
