Question about Computers & Internet
Under a year and just died. nice product that you can rely on. Now what do i do to save my daughters priceless baby pictures. Just makes a start up buzz, then blue circle lights once then just makes this wrrrr wrrrr wrrrr noise then min later red light comes on.
Same problem here. If you can access the files at all i would try transferring them to another drive and either take the broken one somewhere to get fixed or try reformatting it yourself (which I'm trying to figure out how to do myself). Unfortunately I'm positive that any kind of permanent fix will rid the drive of all its contents, leaving you out of luck.
