700GB of data gone :-(

The hard drive in my Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive (hmnhd) has died with the loss of 700GB of data. This is extra annoying as i was in the middle of collecting data from all of my machines into the one place (the dead drive) with the idea that i’d then make a backup of that. Suffice is to say i’m gutted. This is the first hard drive that has completely gone on me with catastrophic data loss. FML.

  1. Logic board, maybe? You&#39;re unlikely the first one it&#39;s happened to, so find out what others did.<br /><br />And I assume you&#39;ve connected it directly to a desktop.<br /><br />Otherwise it&#39;s worth the €700 or whatever for it back.

  2. percussive maintenance, eh? :)<br /><br />speaking of seagate – my firewire port became loose and fell into the HD after 2 weeks. it was doing nay but sitting on my desk at the time.

  3. haha, yea percussive maintenance is a great term isn&#39;t it?<br /><br />yea, that drive was supposed to be energy efficient n all this hype, the reason it broke was because of the ridiculously flimsy floating liquid bearing -which is some great tree saving device, just don&#39;t drop your hat on it! in addition it was the noisiest drive i&#39;ve ever owned, AND it never spun down! energy
