I have a couple of empty hard drives (slave drives, I think they're called) that I use to ferry massive amounts of information (3.-something GB for one, 5.9 GB for the other), between the family computer (internet access), and my own POS (no internet access).
Both hard drives have stopped working. The smaller of the two (relatively, I mean. It's physically larger, but has less space) stopped working months ago, and I thought that was that, when, on a whim, I tried the larger to see if it, too, could be used. (I remembered trying before, and it didn't work. I gave it up). It could.
Imagine my delight.
That was some months ago. It hasn't worked in days, and although it's no great loss (except that I can no longer transport music, movies, comics, et al), I want to fix it, if possible, and if it's at all possible, I'd like to do so without losing the information already on there (story back-ups, and whatnot).
The smaller of the two (again, as it relates to disk space) also has some stuff on it, but honestly, it's been so long since it stopped functioning, I'm not sure I remember what it holds. Regardless, I'd like the chance to recover whatever's on there.
