Question about Maxtor OneTouch A01B080 80 GB Hard Drive
The inpage error is generally the sign of a failing drive and usually the one you are clicking on when it pops up. It is indicative of recent or pending failure of the drive. This means it may not be accessible through normal means, however they can sometimes be repaired(cases such as having been powered down without ejecting).
If your's was unplugged while copying or before using the windows eject function, this is likely the case. If the drive letter is X open your start menu then:
XP/2000 Click Run, then type CHKDSK X: /F then click OK, restart the computer and let it run the consistency check.
Vista: Click into the searchbar and type CMD then hit enter, when the black and white command prompt window comes up type in CHKDSK X: /F then hit enter. Type EXIT then hit enter. Restart the computer and let it run the consistency check.
Either way, if it works and the drive is back copy the important files onto the computer as you should always have them in 2 places. If it does not work you will likely need the help of a pro getting the files back.
Remember, Backup drives are for keeping backups, in the future always keep everything in at east two places. Although I love my friendly neighborhood data recovery specialists, life is cheaper and less frustrating when we don't need their help.
