Question about Maxtor OneTouch III 300 GB Hard Drive
I have a maxtor onetouch III 300gig external hard drive with 275 gig of vital information on it whose power just stop working. The chord is good because i tested it with another hard drive and it works fine. My problem is from the internal power supply or switch and hard drive will not turn on. What direction do i turn with a problem like this.
The data on the drive should hopefully be safe as it sounds like it is the drive enclusure that has failed here (not the drive)
your data should be intact if the drive hasn't failed.
however to access the data is a different matter, as I am unsure how maxtor deal with this, to do it manually you would put the drive into a working enclosure or connect it to a functioning HDD adapter (for your drive type)
however to do this the drive would need to be removed from the enclosure (voiding the warranty)
hope this helps
