Question about Fantom Titanium Hard Drive
The drive is working fine. I go to bed and the automatic backup from the C drive to this drive kicks off. I see in the morning that the backup has not finished, the drive has a solid red light and the computer is frozen. I turn off the USB drive and the computer unfreezes and all other work continues. running XP media edition on a Dell core 2 desktop, 2 GB memory, 250 GB C drive, all USB ports are version 2. Power settings are to not turn off hard drives ever, do not let windows turn off USB to save power. I don't have a clue. The C and USB drive are running NTFS and scandisk shows no errors. Diskmaster shows little or no fragmentation. Similar problem to above. After backing up data overnight, found red light on in morning. PC is working fine, but hard drive is no longer recognized or accessible. Tried rebooting, hard drive makes low buzzing noise for a few seconds, but nothing happens. Light is blue after re-booting. Any chance of getting it working again, and more importantly data salvage?
Typical of external drives overheating.
i sell external case with fan at my store.
