Hi there,

You will need some kind of disc utility.
Open the utility with the drive connected and it should show up in the options of drives.
You should then be able to format the drive.

It should then be usable.

If not take it back to the shop..

I dropped my TrekStor DataStation maxi g.u - 3.5"


Hello

You need to understand that a hard drive is very similar to glass, if you drop it, its done for, and it breaks.

contact a data recovery service if you had something of importance in the drive, you will not be able to recover anything out from it yourself if you really dropped it.

they break, they can break even if the case falls over on it self on the table.

let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks.

Mechanical damage. Last possibility to retrieve the data on it: open the case, extract the hard disk, put it in a desktop and try to access it in there. If even this fails then it's dead, junk it.

At the least, the device is "unreliable", and it would be wise to replace it, either by exercising the warranty (if the warranty still is valid), or by opening the enclosure, removing the disk-drive, buying a new (and compatible) disk-drive, inserting the new disk-drive, and closing-up the enclosure, to create a "new" external storage-device.

Does windows creates a drive letter for it?!
in "my computer" click "Manage"
and then "Manage disks"
does it shows up?!
If so, right click and assign a drive letter, try it now.
Sometimes, if you're using network drive letter assignments, windows messes up with upcoming pen drives or usb disks.

Datastation m.u stopped working : (


Hi,

Dropping a drive can be catastophic but usually isn't.

I suspect you may get lucky and find out it's just some of the circuitry in the trekstor shell that is damaged.

Take the Trekstor unit to your nearest PC shop and ask the technicians there to remove the Hard Drive and put it in a new enclosure to test it. If it works in the new enclosure, buy the enclosure and your done. If it doesn't work in the new enclosure then you may be suffering from worse issues that will require the help of a pro.

Either way let me know how you make out, if you need a pro for the next step, reply back with you location(Country, State, City) and I will refer you to the closest facility who can assist you.


Hope this Helps FixYa,

Chris
