Question about Freecom (24358) 160 GB Network Hard Drive
After a couple of years of good service, the HD is not being recognised by my computer. I have swapped out the USB cable - no change. Tried it on my laptop, no change. Clearly worried re hard drive failure...is this common with these drives? Is there an issue I am missing? And if it has failed, can data be extracted easily? I am grateful for any help you can offer. Kind regards, Nick
If it is powering on and is seen by windows disk management but looks like its not formatted , it has lost its file structure . Try running easy recovary pro 6 , try the varies options , i am running raw data recovary and its recovered 3000 files from a freecom disk 160. when i get the data format the disk and copy it back

Drives do fail Nick. Is it powering up [power supply problem?] Plug it in and go to Start/Control Panel/Admin tools/computer management/storage/ removable storage and disk management. See if the disc is recognised there. If it is not, and if the disk is spinning Try putting it into the deep freeze overnight. Plugging in next morning and if it fires up get as much off as possible before it goes down again.
