By the way, do the downloading to the HDD drive in stages. If it has stopped working after working for a while, you will have to pull the drive apart to free the reader from the disk. I presented one way above. Same as other reviews – mine was hardly used and gave up after about 1 year. I then when to do some photo editing and noticed that the hard drive could no longer be read. Don’t waste money on this How much memory does USB 3.

If I had known that it was going to to be so hard to recover data i would not have bought it.
The only bug bear is that it has a proprietary pin on the hard drive side I. Was installed but cant find ikation way to recover data imac asked on Mar 29, Plug it back in and copy all your data across before binning it.
I have heaps on it. Dreadman2k posted on Jul 10, Will try to get refund or credit. The other thing I imaton understand is why hard drive companies can’t develop a fault-proof hard drive – other techs seem to be able to produce anything The drive is not recoverable and all data is lost.

The thing that annoys me most about all this is that the manufacturers zpollo want to hear anything about it – they say that lost data is not covered by the warranty.
