Hi all, I've been backing up my shoots on external hard drives. Recently, I've had a problem that the hard drive plug socket (not the USB plug, the female socket on the drive itself), has fallen out and I can't access the drives at all. This has happened, unbelievably, to TWO of my external drives within three days!!!
How do I access the drives now? Can they be repaired WITHOUT losing all my information? Local computer shop or where do I send them?
Very annoying problem but I'd appreciate any advice please?
Just buy a new hard drive caddy, remove the hard drive from the broken case and install into the new case, or if you have a desktop computer, just connect the hard drive to that using the sata cable, faster transfer than usb that way anyway
