No responses? Nothing?
Come on guys, surely someone can help me.
I admit my other post is a joke because I haven’t gotten a single response here.
In the meantime I decided to boot into Ubuntu and see if I could access the drive.
Nope. Not even showing up there.
Like I said this thing is brand new has maybe 5 hours of use at the most.
I dumped all of my important files. A ton of software and iso’s and such.
I last used it a few days before my previous post. I restored a friends HP dv6000 with
a custom Win 7 iso I had vlited and installed some of the software off of the drive for

have to face the reality of the truth.
If anyone at all has any advice or tips on how I should go about recovering my data I would be
much obliged. I have Easeus data recovery software but like I said the device is not recognized
by windows, no VCD, nothing, and is no longer showing up in Ubuntu either.
