I dropped my TrekStor DataStation maxi g.u - 3.5"


Hello

You need to understand that a hard drive is very similar to glass, if you drop it, its done for, and it breaks.

contact a data recovery service if you had something of importance in the drive, you will not be able to recover anything out from it yourself if you really dropped it.

they break, they can break even if the case falls over on it self on the table.

let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks.

I dropped my TrekStor DataStation maxi g.u - 3.5" External Hard Drive 1TB & USB 2.0 on the floor. When I turn it on the light illuminates however when I plug it into my computer it doesn't even...


Mechanical damage. Last possibility to retrieve the data on it: open the case, extract the hard disk, put it in a desktop and try to access it in there. If even this fails then it's dead, junk it.

If it's making rattling noises, it's failing (or failed). The only repair is a new drive.

How do I use the network resouce to fix my problem?


Connect the Trekstor to your network, and be sure that it has an IP-address.

On Windows, click Start
Click Run
Type \\192.168.xxx.yyy
where this is the IP-address assigned to the Trekstor.
The windows that opens will be a window onto the Trekstor's files.

Datastation m.u stopped working : (


Hi,

Dropping a drive can be catastophic but usually isn't.

I suspect you may get lucky and find out it's just some of the circuitry in the trekstor shell that is damaged.

Take the Trekstor unit to your nearest PC shop and ask the technicians there to remove the Hard Drive and put it in a new enclosure to test it. If it works in the new enclosure, buy the enclosure and your done. If it doesn't work in the new enclosure then you may be suffering from worse issues that will require the help of a pro.

Either way let me know how you make out, if you need a pro for the next step, reply back with you location(Country, State, City) and I will refer you to the closest facility who can assist you.


Hope this Helps FixYa,

Chris

Not loading


Hi there,

You will need some kind of disc utility.
Open the utility with the drive connected and it should show up in the options of drives.
You should then be able to format the drive.

It should then be usable.

If not take it back to the shop..

Clicking noises


clicking in hard drives basicly.. it comes out from the head going up and then droping down, then going up and droping down.

Id say the harddrive is faulty, would need to be replaced.
I cant say more without actually haveing a look at the drive from here...
