Lucky I bought a spare seagate barracuda to back up the old maxtor 60gig hdd that I got about 1.5yrs ago. And about 1 yr ago, it's been giving me problems, eg not being able to boot up because OS not found or Hdd not found. I managed to sustain the maxtor hdd for another 0.5 yr by hitting and kicking it .
So now, I got my primary drive as the seagate and slave as my old maxtor. Been storing for the last 3-4 mths without any problems and now the maxtor piece of crap juz brokedown again...I have like 30gigs full of files in there, yep my fault for trying my luck on some maxtor junk, but I was wondering if ther eis anyway to retrieve the files. And note, the old hdd is inconsistent, it works sometimes and sometimes not.
Why is it that my primary hdd won't boot windows up when my slave isn't working?? Shouldn't it just bypass the slave hdd coz it's not functioning and continue booting up windows??
