So my dad died, and that got me thinking to check backups from both of us on external maxtor drives. I have a onetouch 3 (500GB) that only clicks ( dead drive) and a onetouch 1TB that can't be found in an HP laptop running win 7 nor an HP envy 23 with win 8.1. Any suggestions?
No free support from Seagate who bought Maxtor, and starting $$$ to get them to talk is $15, and I suspect that is just to upsell you to send drives to them.
Going forward, WHICH is the best storage option? cloned drives every year or cloud that you hope never goes away?
