Question about IO Magic Corporation GigaBank (I250HD35) 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.
It used to show up on my computer as FAT32 (G) and now it is showing up as Local (G) and just freezed up.
Don't know what happened, did it get refomatted? Would it be possible to retrieve my files or are they gone for good? How can I change it back to
Sounds like the Hard drive inside is nearing the end of its life. The best way to get your files off it is to remove the hard drive from the external case and install it directly into your computer tower (or get someone who is computer savy to do it).Once in your computer you have a much better chance of recovering your files and even fixing the drive for future use.
