My 1.5 tb Seagate external drive decided to fritz on me today. I’m freaking out. I’m talking thousands of pictures, all of my schoolwork, archived emails, music, you name it. I’m guessing that I’m going to need professional data recovery services, which I’ve never done before. I don’t even want to think about what that’s going to cost, but it’s not really optional. Any ideas? Let me know in the comments. Thanks!
Update: tried another drive in a USB enclosure. It didn’t work either. Turns out that it’s a Maxtor, owned by Seagate. Oh, and they don’t feel like they need to put drivers up on their site. So, day one, no Windows 7; not by any fault of the program. I’m heading for bed or I won’t sleep tonight.
