Question about Fantom Drives 120 GB Hard Drive
I have 2 of these 120GB drives I use to back up a NAS, swapping the drives each week for redundancy. This happened once before and I used the backup power supply which fixed the issue for a while. Now again, neither drive is being detected. Pwr sply seems to test good, But neither drive will be detected anymore. I believe this is power related.
I don't think it's a power related issue. Hard drives are very sensitive, swapping the two HD would cause a problem. Do you hear a clicking sound while the HD is turned ON? If you do, I'm regretfully informing you that the HD is starting to quit working. Bad sectors are starting to increase.
I would advise you to try connecting the problem HD to another computer. If the HD is detected by another computer, back up all the files and then reformat the problem HD. After reformatting the HD, restore the files that you back up from another storage and it should be working again.
Have a great day!
