Hello all--my first post in the forums
Anyway, I have a Maxtor One Touch II 200GB USB external hard drive as a backup. I had problems with my system, so I reloaded everything from scratch on my main HDD. I made an
attempt to get my data from my Maxtor, but received an error:
"Location is not available. X E:\ is not accessible. Incorrect function."
Under (My) Computer, the drive can be seen, but just as "Local Disk (E:)", without showing its properties.
When I try to access it, the light on the unit flashes as if it is trying to get the data, and I get the above mentioned error.
Does anyone have this problem under their belt?I don't have any experience in data recovery software, or data recovery in general. I was actually considering taking it to the Geek Squad but I'm not sure how badly I will be charged for finding out if the drive is bad now, as well as any data recovery (they have 3 categories of data recovery pricing). I'm just looking for any advice anyone can give. Thank you.
