External hard drive blown up
Posted on 2011-10-27
I have two 500 gb external hard drives connected to my home PC where I keep backup, movies, music, etc and while my computer was on a couple of days ago, there was an electrical surge in my neighborhood that caused the PC to go down (along with everything connected to it). The computer and every other piece of hardware came back up except for my Maxtor One Touch. Windows 7 attempts to install the drivers for it and comes up with "could not find drivers" or something like that even though it worked fine the day before (assuming the drivers ARE still on the PC). Is this fixable and if not, is there any way to get the files off of it?
