Ok to start off i read a few topics around here and i noticed some stuff. So here is my discription.
I bought my passport essential 640gb about 2-3 months ago. When i made the purchase i knew it was a fragile item. I tried not to drop it. And i succeeded… almots. Dropped it only once from not too high. Cant recall exact hight. Anyway. I dropped it. Picked it up and plugged it back in to check if its ok. Wooo hooo everything is fine.
I move it a lot. 95% of the time its not working while moving it.
Here is what i think might be the problem, which does bother me cause the same happened with my wi fi.
A few days ago i had to switch from windows to linux for a little bit and needed some data from the external hard drive. So i plug it in, get the data and remove it (not with safe remove). Today i plug it in and no computer recognizes it. The strange thing is that in linux (ubuntu) it works abso-efing-lutely fine. But in the buggy sh-beep-y windows it says its corrupt and unreadable. PLS HELP. Im out of ideas. Except to clear any space i can and copy everything through ubuntu (but thats around 100 gb of data on the ExtHD), format it and copy all the data back on it. Please help me. Thanks in advance
