Trekstor DataStation maxi m.u 500GB stopped working :'(
Hello, I've been using my trekstor last night putting on 1G worth of information on it. Today I turned it on finding that it is showing on My Computer as a Local Disk but won't identify it as itself properly. I go to click on it making sure my information is still on it but it says it is not accessible, "Error performing inpage operation."
This is probably a bad sector on your hard disk. Connect it up and try this:
1. Start > Run > type in cmd then click OK to get a command prompt.
2. Type in chkdsk e: /r (replace e: with the drive letter of your external hard drive).

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.
I just had this problem with both my external drives (I was using the same power cable and just alternating between them). I went and got drive B's power cable and they work fine now. Try replacing the power cable
