We have an external Maxtor OneTouch 4 plus 1 tB external
I bumped it and knocked it over and now can't access it. I know, I know; clumsy clumsy!
Could I have crashed the head and is there ANY chance I can retrieve the files on it?
Moved it to another 'puter and it says 'new hardware' and tries to find a driver.
Get this box:
______________________________________________________________________________
'Either the partition on the external drive is not recoginzed or the external drive has no
partition. Do you want to create one?

WARNING: Formatting will erase all data on you external drive. Click "format" to begin the
process: ....... etc."
_____________________________________________________________________________

I suppose I could bring it to a shop to see if they can recover the data.
what's your thoughts on this?
Thanks, Ken J.
