Question about Maxtor Shared Storage II 2TB Network External Dual-Drive Hard Drive
I have a Maxtor as well that behaves badly sometimes. I did some research online and found out that the drives are using a Linux type of OS inside. They get out of sync and cause the drive to think it is not ready.
I found that if I plugged and unplugged the drive until I got a response, I could access the data.
I would recommend a different drive for your stuff. One that doesn't use this type of OS.
Maxtor also has a problem with one of the drivers under Windows 7. All in all, I recommend replacing this drive if you can retrieve the data.
